Is-sur-Tille, France Commemorates the Construction of the American Camp Williams

Is-sur-Tille, France is about to commemorate the construction of the American Camp Williams that was begun 100 years ago. A celebration will be held on 24 September 2017, 100 years after the arrival of American soldiers to Is-sur-Tille, in the great war (WWI). Various events and exhibitions will take place.

Descendants of those that helped to build the camp, worked there, were assigned, or got married there are invited to attend.

See http://www.alenjes.com/camp-american, a site created by my friend, Jeff Bockman.

A list of the American soldiers that married French girls in Is-sur-Tille and the surrounding towns during 1918-1919 has been created. A more detailed list will be included in a publication being created for the 100th anniversary.
