Early in September, the War Department appointed Charles Summerall a brigadier general and ordered him to take command of the Sixty-seventh Field Artillery Brigade of the Forty-second Division at Camp Mills, Long Island. Soon an intensive schedule of training was begun under French officers and American officers who had attended the French artillery schools. Later, he took command of the First Artillery Brigade of the First Division. This event was traced to his service with General Robert L. Bullard in the Philippines in 1899. Shortly after the relief in the sector, General Bullard was assigned to command the newly organized Third Corps. Charles was sent to GHQ to arrange for assignment to the artillery of his corps. En route, he stopped at the headquarters of the First American Corps and found an order promoting him to major general.
