The small villages of St Georges and St Juvin are located about three miles apart in the Meuse-Argonne region. Between the two villages runs the road that was, in October 1918 of World War 1, the temporary front line between the Germans to the north and the Americans to the south. The fighting was bloody with many casualties over the period of two weeks. It was along this road that Private John Ammon was killed by an artillery shell shot from over the German lines on October 16, 1918. John Ammon was the great uncle of GlobalGayz website owner Richard Ammon who in 2010 traveled to this area to locate the place, near the St Georges cemetery, where John lost his life less than a month before the Armistice was signed on November 11, 1918.
