History of the 77th Division Aug 25, 1917 - Nov 11, 1918

We have scanned the publication, "History of the 77th Division Aug 25, 1917 - Nov 11, 1918" and indexed it for your search. This history, one of several such works compiled post World War I, summarizes the Division's activities in the war with descriptions of land convered and battles contested. There are lists of casualties taken and citations issued. We believe this work and those like it provide an excellent resource for family historians and others to understand an important part off our ancestors' lives as they made their way out of the American heartland to military training bases and from there to a European continent which would never again be the same. We hope you find this resource useful and as fascinating as we found it.

The scanned images of original pages are somewhat large files which may take time to load. We have tried to make this text as navigable as possible. Please let us know if you have trouble.
