  1. Joel Miller says:

    Hi, Sarah! In the photo caption, is “29th Infantry Regiment” correct? I believe that should be “290th Infantry Regiment.” Best, Joel.

    • Sarah Sundin says:

      Hi Joel. 29th was the original caption. But I just did a check – and you’re right. The 290th belonged to the 75th Division, not the 29th. I’ll change the caption. Thank you for catching that!
