      "For those who don't know about the Foresters, they were the drill team members of the fraternal order "Modern Woodmen of America." They marched in parades all over America from 1890 into the early 1930's. Since they were Woodmen, they used axes in their drill routines instead of batons, rifles or flags. You can read more about them on the MWA Internet site here. Their popularity skyrocketed after the Saint Louis World's Fair of 1904, but many skilled drill teams were broken up by the Great War, and the new teams developed after the war finally disbanded during the Great Depression.
      The ax was specifically made for carrying in a parade. It looks like a normal single-bit camp ax, but it's not. The new metal "aluminium" was used for the unsharpened head and a light hard wood was used for the handle and stained to look like hickory. "MWA" is cast into the head in stylized logs."

      I was thinking that "mwa" modern woodsmen of America was a totally different orgizanation from "wow" woodsmen of the world
