Bristol’s Participation in the Batlle of Seicheprey

While the small town of Bristol, Connecticut was quiet in the wee hours of April 20, 1918, the most shocking time in its military history was beginning 3,600 miles away in the ruined town of Seicheprey, France. As Bristol slept, its men who were part of the Yankee Division’s 102nd Infantry were deafened by a massive, unrelenting German bombardment. These green troops were about to make history by participating in the first significant engagement fought by the American Expeditionary Forces in World War I. What followed was vicious hand to hand fighting with 3,200 attacking German storm troopers in the trenches, in the woods, in the village. When the fighting ceased, 18 Bristol men from Company D were
wounded, almost two dozen were captured, and a total of 8 Bristol men died, all within just 24 hours.

Join us on Thurs, Sept 21st to learn more.
