The Unknown Soldier's Journey Home

in Homepage Categories

    The Unknown Soldier's Journey Home is among the intriguing episodes of American history in which U.S. and French citizens worked together wholeheartedly for a noble cause.

   In the Autumn of 1921 – 3 years after the end of World War I – the remains of the Unknown U.S. Soldier were retrieved from the battlefields of France, transported over the Atlantic, and laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery.

    This heroic mission is described in one of several books of American history available at www.acadianhouse.com/history.  Another inspiring story of heroism is found in our book titled The Forgotten Hero of My Lai: The Hugh Thompson Story.

    Several of our books focus specifically on Louisiana history. For example, Growing Up in South Louisiana, Cities of the Dead (Historic New Orleans' above-ground cemeteries), Southern Jesuit Biographies (300 years of Jesuit history in the South, as told through 200 mini-bios), and The Terrible Storms of 2005 (Hurricanes Katrina and Rita).
