Cantigny is a small village in the Somme. On the 28th of May, 1918, General Pershing, Commanding General of the American Expeditionary Force decided to send, at the request of the Allies, an American division to retake the village and reduce a small salient made by the German army. The 1st Division, the most experienced at the time, was selected for the attack. It was a total victory, the first victory for an American division.  More than a thousand of US soldiers were wounded and 199 were killed in action.

  

The American success at Cantigny assured the French and British that American divisions could be entrusted in the line against the German offensive to take Paris. The victory at Cantigny was followed by attacks at Château Thierry and Belleau Wood in the first half of June.


Today, the village contains several monuments in memory of this first victory including one Federal monument maintained by the American Battle Monuments Commission, and also remains of the battle.
