1st Infantry Division Museum

The First Infantry Division Museum tells the story of the US Army's most storied division. Formed in 1917, the First Division has carved its name into the annals of the history of the United States of America. Campaigns from the trenches of World War I to the beaches of North Africa, Sicily and Normandy begins this story of service and sacrifice. The jungles of Southeast Asia, the rough terrain of the Balkans and the deserts of Southwest Asia are settings for the more recent history of the Big Red One.
