More on the Chasseurs Alpin at the White House
I found a video fragment that clearly belongs to a post I published 3 years ago on the Blue Devils, or Chasseurs Alpin, during their WW I visit to Washington DC.
In efforts to help Uncle Sam sell war bonds, veteran Blue Devils crossed the Atlantic. Vast crowds cheered as the French Soldiers paraded through New York, Chicago, and the White House. The major newspapers recounted their war stories bullet by bullet.
