    Round Table of the World Wars: The Meuse-Argonne Campaign

    September 29, 2018 2pm-4pm

    McMahon's Irish Pub

     

    The largest battle in U.S. Army history took place between September and November 1918. Over 1.2 million soldiers took part in what would be known as the Meuse-Argonne Campaign. More American soldiers died in the Argonne than in any other campaign in history: over 26,000 killed in action. Thousands of Virginians took part in this major undertaking on the Western Front. Most were soldiers of the 29th and 80th Divisions. Who were they? What were their experiences like? How have their actions influenced history?

     

    Please join this centennial celebrated discussion led by historian John Heckman. This event is co-hosted by the Fauquier Historical Society and Warrenton VFW Post 9835. Tickets are $20/person and include beer, soft drinks, and hors d’oeuvres. Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite or at the door.
