September 26, 1918, Varennes-en-Argonne


This was exactly 96 years ago, on September 26, 1918. The little town of Varennes-en-Argonne was freed by US troops. As you can see on this picture, the buildings were heavily damaged by shelling. By the way, I wonder where the photographer was to take this wonderful picture…
