Epinal Cemetery

Located about 6.5 kilometers (4 miles) southeast of the city of Epinal (Department of the Vosges), this 48-acre cemetery contains the graves of 5,255 American soldiers.

Cited on a plateau about 100 feet above the Moselle River, the cemetery lies in the foothills of the Vosges Mountains. The Memorial is rectangular in shape, with two large bas-relief panels; it includes a chapel, portico, and museum room with a large mosaic operations map depicting US military operations in the Seventh and Third Army zones. The surrounding walls enclose the Court of Honor; on these walls are engraved the names of 424 American combat dead whose remains lie in locations known only to God.
