Iron Division


From its harrowing test of fire on the Marne River in July 1918 to the bitter fighting in the Argonne in October, the men of Pennsylvania’s Keystone division took the best shots the German Army had, and returned it in spades.

Black Jack Pershing dubbed the 109th “Men Of Iron” for their stand on the Marne, and the 28th his “Iron Division”

The living historians of Co. L 109th Infantry have undertaken to remember these brave men, and all the men of the AEF who went “Over There”, 110,000 of which never came home.
