The woods are now beautifully peaceful but very moving to realise that 100 years ago the woods were the scene of ferocious fighting at close combat. There are trails to follow with plaques giving details of the fighting.

The grounds are very nice. There are relics left over from that battle. If you go to the cemetery below you can get a map of information about the woods.

This monument appropriately honors the participation of the USMC in the Great War. During my visit I was pleased to see a large French tour group standing around the monument and receiving a thorough orientation from a French tour guide.
