Finding the Lost Battalion: Photo Gallery

In this section over the coming weeks we will be loading up the collected images of some 200+ of the nearly 700 men confirmed to have been in the Lost Battalion, with some brief information on each. There will also be a section devoted to period photos of the area. This section will be in a constant state of expansion, so check back often!

If you have additional photos or information you'd like to share, please contact Robert Laplander via the email link found under the Contents section.
