Between Le Charmel and Jaulgonne

Description
A watercolor and pastel drawing on paper of American troops moving between Le Charmel and Jaulgonne in France during the Battle of the Marne. At left, soldiers in green uniforms march along the road towards the foreground. Several of the soldiers are carrying guns, probably M1903 Springfield rifles. At right are several covered supply wagons heading down the road into the background. The wagon at the rear is stuck in the muddy road and several soldiers are trying to push it out. One soldier at center, possibly an officer, is watching the soldiers push the wagon. Trees line the side of the road and a white building can be seen in the far background.
