Through a process of many months and the help of countless people on this and other forums I have discovered the approximate area of death of my great grand uncle during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. I just now looked at the site on Bing Maps (Google Maps has a different picture) and the aerials seemed odd. I saw lots of lightly colored squiggly lines in the area. I have attached a photograph:
To my untrained and overexuberant eyes, these are the remnants of the 1918 trench positions my great grand uncle was engaged in when he died. Am I correct in this assumption or am I crazy?
EDIT: For the curious, X marks the spot of my ancestor's original burial in 1918.
