The First Division was transferred in September 1920 to Camp Dix, New Jersey. In Louisville, hundreds of the officers and men had married Kentucky girls. As soon as they were settled at Camp Dix, Charles began writing a history of the First Division. General Douglas MacArthur, who was the superintendent at West Point, asked Charles to let him bring the first and third classes of the Corps of Cadets to Camp Dix for summer training with the First Division. Charles' son was a member of the third class. They found Camp Dix in a badly deteriorated condition. So, the buildings were repaired, railroads fixed to the target range, and living conditions improved. Charles had arranged with the War Department to have First Division officers and men detailed to the duty of compiling the records of the First Division in the War Department.
