26th Infantry Division

Activated: July 1917 (National Guard Division from Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont).

Overseas: October 1917.

Major Operations: Champagne-Marne, Aisne-Marne, St. Mihiel, Meuse-Argonne.

Days of combat: 210.

Casualties: Total-13,664 (KIA-1,587 ; WIA-12,077).

The Twenty-sixth Division was the first of the National Guard divisions and was formed from the National Guard of the New England States. The National Guard was called into federal service in 1917 and drafted into the service under the provision of the National Defense Act of 1916. The New England Guard went to camp in their respective states, remaining there until departure for France. The "YD" monogram refers to the name "Yankee Division," given them while in France.

Just a little extra... Pte James Carver hailed from Norwich, Conneticut and his "cause of death" was "Killed in Action".

"At 11:30 AM the 102nd made another attempt with its 3d and 2d battalions to capture Cote 360 in Bois D'ormont following an artillery preparation on the enemy trenches. The troops met with stubborn resistance and all attempts to advance failed."

Well what can a say. I'm a relatively new member of the board, and have just, out of curiosity done a word search on my name and find my namesake.

May he rest in peace.
