The Battle of Cantigny on May 28 1918 was a comparatively small battle in World War I, but it was the first major offensive undertaken by the American Expeditionary force. The AEF's success in beating back the Germans was a tremendous moral victory for the Allies, and validated General Pershing's argument that the Americans were better off fighting independently than than as reinforcements for the British and French.  To mark this pivotal moment in American involvement in the Great War, the ABMC will hold a ceremony on May 27 commemorating the men who fought and died in the battle at the ...

1918 Commemoration for Shelling of Nauset Beach
Dates: Friday, July 20, 2018 - Sunday, July 22, 2018 08:00am - 05:00pm

On July 21, 1918, Orleans, MA was shelled by German U156 submarine of the Imperial German Navy, captained by Richard Feldt. On the morning of 21 July, U-156 surfaced three miles off Orleans and fired its two deck guns at the town and at the passing tugboat Perth Amboy, which had four barges in her tow. Perth Amboy was sunk, causing the barges to capsize as well, and founder later; the shells fired at the town landed harmlessly in a marsh and on Nauset Beach, giving the town of Orleans the distinction of being the only spot in the United ...

Commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the Champagne-Marne Offensive
Dates: Saturday, July 28, 2018 09:00am - 05:00pm

The Champagne-Marne Offensive, also known as the Second Battle of the Marne, was initially a massive German offensive intended to finally break through the French lines and defeat the Allies in July 1918. Ultimately it turned into a significant Allied victory, and Germany afterwards was in a perpetual defensive mode until the Armistice in November. The U.S. lost 12,000 men, in contrast to the devastating loss of 168,000 German soldiers.  The ABMC will commemorate the centennial of this campaign at the Oise-Aisne American Cemetery and Memorial on July 28 and 29.

Commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the Amiens-Somme Offensive
Dates: Saturday, August 11, 2018 09:00am - 05:00pm

The Amiens-Somme campaign was a predominantly British and French offensive, as the AEF under Pershing fought further south along the trench line. However one American division fought with the British Expeditionary Forces, and contributed to the great successes the British and French had in smashing through German lines. The campaign was the beginning of the Hundred Days offensive, which gained back much of the land in northeastern France that had been lost to the Germans since 1914.  The AMBC will commemorate the anniversary at the Somme American Cemetery in Bony, and will hold an additional commemoration at the Bellicourt American Monument, ...
