SOUTH CAROLINA'S WORLD WAR I SOLDIERS
BURIED IN
ST. MIHIEL AMERICAN CEMETERY
France

St. Mihiel American Cemetery
The World War I St. Mihiel American Cemetery and Memorial is located at the west edge of Thiaucourt, France. The burial area is divided by Linden alignment trees and paths into four equal plots.


At the center is a large sundial surmounted by an American eagle. To the west is a statue of a World War I soldier and at the eastern end is a semi-circular overlook dominated by a sculpture representing a victory vase. On two walls of the museum are recorded the names of 282 of the missing. Rosettes mark the names of those since recovered and identified.

This forty-acre cemetery contains the graves of 4,153 American military Dead from World War I. Of these, 50 entered service from South Carolina. Most of these gave their lives in the great offensive which resulted in the reduction of the St. Mihiel salient that threatened Paris.
