About The Event

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 Cantigny American Monument, close to the site of the battle.
