About the First Division Museum
Robert R. McCormick served in the 1st Infantry Division during World War I fought during the Battle of Cantigny in 1918.

Organized on June 8, 1917 for duty on the Western Front in World War I, the 1st Infantry Division was first permanent division in the regular Army and has seen action in all American wars since 1917, except the Korean War. Today museum visitors can witness the sights, sounds, and soldiers’ stories from the First World War through modern times.
