        Henry Ford - Henry Ford "Camping" with Edison and Firestone

        For many years, Henry Ford took annual camping trips with the "vagabonds" - his close friends Thomas Edison, Harvey Firestone and John Burroughs - with an entourage of servants, photographers, friends and family often in tow. On several occasions a president even joined along - President Harding in 1921 and Coolidge in 1923. Here, the group dined around a giant Lazy Susan during their 1923 trip. Watch this footage of the friends camping, from American Experience: "Henry Ford."
