In the early part of December, 1918, the Division Commander, Major General Hale, at a conference at Montigny-le-Roi, expressed his desire that the several organizations of the division take steps to properly record their history. An order on this matter soon followed, and it is in compliance with this order that the following history or story of the 103rd Infantry has been written. Primarily its purpose is to record the events, the actions, and the facts, concerning the regiment from the time of its incorporation as a part of the 26th Division through the close of the war. This primary purpose would be satisfied by a very few pages of statistics and data, but it is thought that something more should be given; for, just as any history would be dull if it contained nothing !but dates, places, figures, and names, in the same measure would this story of the 103rd Infantry be dry and uninteresting if the circumstances, the life, and the atmosphere surrounding the events should be omitted.
