Thiacourt, France

The World War I St. Mihiel American Cemetery and Memorial is located at the west edge of Thiaucourt, France.  The cemetery can be reached by automobile from Paris by toll Autoroute A-4.  Take the Fresnes-en-Woevre Exit following Route D-904 south to Beney-en-Woevre then D-67 to the cemetery.  There is direct rail service from Paris (Gare de l'Est) to Onville.  At Metz, Nancy and Verdun, hotel accommodations are available and taxicabs may be hired.

This cemetery, forty acres in extent, contains the graves of 4,153 American military Dead from World War I.  Most of these gave their lives in the great offensive which resulted in the reduction of the St. Mihiel salient that threatened Paris.

The headstones are aligned in long rows and divided into four plots by tree lined walks.  At the center of these walks is a large sundial surmounted by an American eagle.  To the right (west) end of the walk is a small monument and to the left is a semicircular overlook.

Beyond the burial area to the south is a white stone memorial consisting of a small chapel, a peristyle with a large rose granite urn in the center and a museum.  The chapel contains a beautiful mosaic portraying an angel sheathing a sword.  On the end walls of the museum are recorded the names of 284 American Missing who gave their lives in the service of their country and whose remains were never recovered or identified.  On the wall opposite the door is a large inlaid marble map describing the St. Mihiel Offensive.
