The Thirtieth Did it.
There has hardly been a single
person in the South who doubted
as to what division really broke
the Hindenburg line on the 29th
of September 1918, but in tbe
North the newspaper writers
and magazine writers have been
inclined to give the praise to the
27th Division, who were fighting
on the left side of the 30. h Divis
ion in that battle. The matter
has been - definitely established
however, it seems, with the an
nouncement by the war depart
ment that the 30th Division real
ly broke the German line first.
In seeking to establish this
real line breakers on the out
skirts of Bellicourt Southerners
have not attempted to take any
credit from the 27thth Division,
but at the same time they have
endeavored to give their own sol
diers their just dues, and it is
right and fair that the T-Var De
partment should make a public
statement giving the facts and
giving to the members of both
the 27th and 30th Division their
just dues. Concord Times,
