Trench of Bayonets

Trench of Bayonets
Trench of Bayonets, 16 Feb. 1957
Near Verdun, France

This was taken on our
2nd trip to Verdun.

In June 1916, the men of 3rd company, 137th Regiment were
killed and buried when a shell exploded. After the dirt and dust settled, only the tops of their rifles and bayonets were showing above the ground.
