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

Map Series #9 The First Division at Cantigny

This map is section from the "Battle of Cantigny Map"  published in 1944 by the American Battle Monuments Commission.  It not only clearly shows the advance against the village of Cantigny in late May 1918 but also shows the sector occupation of the 1st Division of the AEF until 7 July, when it was redeployed for the 18 July assault south of Soissons.
