On the evening of Oct. 2, 1918, Major Charles W. Whittlesey of the 77th Division led nearly 700 men under his command into the narrow Charlevaux Ravine, deep in the heart of the Argonne Forest in northeastern France. Five days later, just 194 survivors walked out of the ravine... and into history. This is their story.
Robert Laplander will be live via Zoom to introduce us to this presentation he gave at the National WWI Museum and Memorial's 2018 Symposium. Participants will then view the presentation recording as a group with the ability to ask Robert questions throughout the showing.
