The soldiers who manned the front near Kemmel came from New York and its surrounding districts (27th Division, better known as the New York Division) and from Tennessee and North and South Carolina (30th Division). On the night of 30 to 31 August 1918, patrols from the 27th Division set off to reconnoitre their sector. Both divisions met determined German resistance. They moved forward slowly. That afternoon the 27th Division reached the area where the Kemmel Monument stands.
