On the whole, it may be said that Montauk Point was an ideal place for the isolation of troops
who had been exposed to or had yellow fever, and for the recuperation of those
greatly debilitated by malarial attacks of marked severity.

They returned home at Fort Pond Bay, Montauk,
August & September, 1898.
