French Soldiers
Has anyone wondered about the French soldiers buried at the site Forrest discovered? Considering his connections, would he have started a repatriation process, whereby France took back the remains and prepared a proper burial site?
Or is that not in the protocol. Once buried, they stay there.

I bought a french program from the late 1800's off eBay. I was really surprised on its condition and looks like one of the kind museum quality. Maybe a nine foot lamp with a bison head at the top shadowing only in red. A strong connection I really think. So you take a photo but someone and someone else photo bombed you. Wouldn't you consider the person in the background buried? I do research.... Smile

I think he helped put together a "in memory of" monument, that gave meaning to forgotten soldiers, and stuff.
The burial land that happened upon was forgotten, and in the middle of nowhere.

There is a place in wilderness of Colorado called Soldier Stone. It is tucked away literally in the middle of nowhere, on top of a mountain or mesa.. They got special special permission from the government to have it placed there.. The only way to get to it, is by hiking, or a 4 wheeler. Can't drive up there in a car or truck. It is a beautiful monument, that has several different languages.. I have a feeling Fenn may have had a hand in it. The guy who came up with the idea died before it was finished I believe. So others finished it for him.

If you ever want to go there, the park rangers will give you a map. But I guess they dont give just anyone maps.. Its not for tourists, its for veterans, and people like that, from the stories that I have read.. Of course unless you can find it on your own..

This has been discussed a few times on here, but here is a link, since we need to remember anyway.

I looked at that place a while back. It's interesting...I asked f something about it at the time and his response led me in a different direction. But I wouldn't mind checking out the spot either.

RE: French Soldiers
Interesting discussion which makes me think of a forgotten ghost Town in New Mexico, Which is at the end of a solve that started at Fort Union.
