image-07Peter John Williams, a lifelong resident of Philadelphia, an attorney and amateur historian with a special  interest in World War I. The photographs for this book were selected from various public and private  museums, libraries, and collections; many of them have not been seen for almost 90 years.

 It is hoped that this website will be a place where the names, stories, heroism, and sacrifice of those now  gone will be shared and remembered.
