Visiting St. Thibault

I wish I could have posted this yesterday but the internet connection was a little iffy, however may 26th was a great day for developing the picture of Lieutenant George Wilson Potts, the Bucknellian that I chose to research before our trip. We visited the area that he likely fought for against the Germans after American troops descended from St. Thibault towards the Marne River. The area was a bridge that was essentially the only way over the river and the only way for either side to advance. This was where Lt. Potts earned his silver star for his valor during the fight. After that we happened upon a monument that we had not known was there recently, a monument to honor Lt. Potts’ division, the 4th division which is pictured below.
