When the call went out for American boys to join the fight to save democracy in Europe in 1917, the Yankee Division was the first to be organized, the first to cross the ocean, and the first to take to the battle lines in World War I.

Formed on July 18, 1917 and activated on August 22, 1917 at Camp Edwards, MA from units of the Massachusetts Army National Guard, the Yankee Division was the nickname of the 26th Infantry Division of the U.S. Army.
