Virtual Earth map of Chateau-Thierry American Monument

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


The Chateau-Thierry American Monument is a World War I memorial, located near Chateau-Thierry, Aisne, France.

It commands a wide view of the valley of the Marne River. It is about 54 miles east of Paris, four and a half miles southeast of our Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial and 17 miles southwest of our Oise-Aisne American Cemetery and Memorial. It commemorates the achievements of the American forces that fought in this region in World War I. At the nearby cemeteries rest those Americans who gave their lives in the service of their country. Two stone pylons mark the entrance from Highway N-3 running from Paris to Chateau-Thierry.

The monument consists of an impressive double colonnade rising above a long terrace, as designed by Paul Philippe Cret. On its west facade are heroic sculptured figures representing the United States and France. On its east facade is a map showing American military operations in this region and an orientation table pointing out the significant battle sites.
