      hard to see, but this was the church
    by Segolily

Falcon Hill used to be a town. There was a village church, a mairie and a history. But it became the place the Americans were given to push the Germans back. The fight in the Argonne. It brings back nightmare memories to those who were there. There is the story of the lost brigade, and Cher Ami the pigeon who earned a silver medal of valor. Today the well kept memorial is quiet and peaceful. The town on the hill destroyed and in ruins.
