The American Liberation of Chartres and le Jardin du Luxembourg

After we visited the Cathedral, we walked through the beautiful town of Chartres, where we encountered a parade organized by the Historial Militaire de Chartres et de l'Eure-et-Loir to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the American liberation of Chartres by the U.S. 5th Infantry and the 7th Armored Divisions of the XX Corps of the 3rd U.S. Army Command under George S. Patton.

On Sunday afternoon, a group of us gathered in the idyllic Jardin du Luxembourg with other F&M students studying in Paris this semester through the IES and IFE programs.  Fummers à Paris!
