Battle of Cantigny 105th Anniversary
Join us as we commemorate the 105th Anniversary of the Battle of Cantigny with a reflection and wreath-laying ceremony, followed by presentations and family-friendly activities!
On May 28, 1918, the U.S. Army’s First Division successfully attacked and defeated German forces holding the small village of Cantigny, 75 miles north of Paris, in America’s first significant battle of World War I. That day, Colonel Robert R. McCormick, then Major McCormick, commanded the 1st Battalion of the 5th Field Artillery, leading his unit in providing crucial weapon support. Understandably, the experience had a major impact on Col. McCormick for the rest of his life. UponView more
