Americans In Europe

For Memorial Day

Last year, Civil War historian Brooks Simpson was in Europe visiting battle sites and American cemeteries containing WWI and WWII dead.  Take a look at his photos and commentary.  A couple of examples:

The Meuse-Argonne Cemetery; 14,246 Americans are buried here.
