The American Legion Monthly, Vol. 7 : August, 1929 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The American Legion Monthly, Vol. 7: August, 1929 By the time we reached Meaux we were sure something must be doing. The town itself was in confusion. Furniture and bundles of bed clothes were piled in the streets and the people were standing every where in bunches gabbing away and waving their arms. Then after we left Meaux we began to meet the refugees. They were moving to ward Meaux in every imaginable style. An old man and woman would come trudging along with their belongings tied to their backs. There were people pushing baby carriages and wheelbarrows heaped high with clothes and pots and pans. Some had hayracks with all their stuff piled on and the family perched on top. Some had chickens and geese in crates tied underneath the wagons. There were droves of sheep and hogs. We were held up quite a while in back of a drove of hogs. They would not get off the road. And there were slow-moving oxen-drawn wagons. Most of the women were crying.
