Little remembered now is the importance of New York’s young men in breaking the Kaiser’s army amid the farmlands of northeastern France. Nine years later to the day, O’Ryan helped dedicate a monument to the regiment on the edge of Central Park at 67th Street and Fifth Avenue, depicting seven doughboys in their fight for freedom and for a world order unthreatened by militaristic nationalism.
“Against a veritable sea of barbed wire, a checkerboard of machine-gun nests, a volcano of fire and an atmosphere of doubt, the regiment moved forward and was victorious,” the New York Times quoted the retired general as saying.“ I believe no infantry regiment ever excelled them as a fighting unit.” Take a moment on Saturday’s 100th Anniversary to remember them.
