UPDATE: After almost three years of restoration works, the Montfaucon American Monument is reopening to the public who can now access the inside of the monument and climb the 234 steps to get magnificent views of the nearby battlefield.
The American Battle Monuments Commission’s (ABMC) Somme American Cemetery is located in the small French village of Bony, in the Hauts-de-France region. How well do you know this site?
On June 7, 2023, ABMC will inter the remains of an unknown WWI soldier at Oise-Aisne American Cemetery in France, one of ABMC’s eight WWI cemeteries located overseas.
More than 500,000 Americans lost their lives in World War I and World War II defending freedom and democracy far from home.
