Cantigny Park is named for a village in France where the First Division of the American Expeditionary Forces fought America’s first battle for Europe 100 years ago. The late Colonel Robert R. McCormick, Chicago Tribune owner and publisher, was there. Paul Herbert, Executive Director of Cantigny’s First Division Museum, will discuss how and why the Division was organized and deployed, the battles it fought, and how it became the legendary 1st Infantry Division, the famous Big Red One.
