Putting the Pieces of the Past Together: Building the Chronology of the Meuse-Argonne

About this Chapter

Putting the Pieces of the Past Together focuses on the chronology of the Meuse-Argonne Campaign and its larger role within the Great War.

To have students understand the historical significance and perspective of this World War I campaign, students will build a chronology of the campaign as it fits into World War I. The activities within this chapter will help students answer the following questions:

  • What was life like for American soldiers during the Meuse-Argonne campaign?
  • What role did these men and the Meuse-Argonne Offensive play in the larger scope of the war?
  • Where would their personal stories fall in the chronology of the Meuse-Argonne and World War I?
  • What direct impact did the Meuse-Argonne campaign and the brave soldiers, French citizens, and volunteers play in the larger context of World War I?
