26th Infantry Infographic

Here is an infographic I created for the Centennial Anniversary of the 26th Yankee Division.

The 26th Infantry "Yankee" Division  was activated 100 years ago in 1917 in the City of Boston.

The 26th Infantry "Yankee" Division comprised of National Guard units of the six New England states with the Massachusetts Army National Guard providing over half of the 28,000 soldier division which was nicknamed the "Yankee Division."

The 26th was the first full U.S. Army division to arrive in France and was exposed to more combat than any other division except for one. The division incurred approximately 18,000 casualties.
