Chateau-Thierry American Monument

The Chateau-Thierry American Monument is located on a hill two miles west of Chateau-Thierry with a wide view of the Marne River valley. It commemorates sacrifices and achievements of American and French forces before and during the Aisne-Marne and Oise-Aisne offensives. The monument is a double colonnade rising from a terrace. On the west facade are sculptures representing the United States and France. On the east facade is a map of military operations in surrounding terrain with aides to viewing the sites from the monument.
