Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

A Taxicab of the Marne

Villeroy, France, near Meaux, will be the site of the Centennial reenactment of the First Battle of the Marne on 7 September 2014. Organized by the Museum of the Marne located in Villeroy, the all-day-long event will feature an encampment and headquarters display, hundreds of French and German living historians with authentic uniforms and weapons, and, as shown here, a Taxicab of the Marne that delivered troops to the battlefield just north of the village in 1914.
