If you ever get to Naperville, IL, there is a great museum on the estate Colonel Robert R. McCormick. Colonel McCormick served in World War I and saw action at the Battle of Cantigny. After returning home, he renamed the estate in honor of the battle. The museum is the 1st Infantry Division Museum at Cantigny. COL McCormick’s home, a few hundred yards away, is open to the public. Both are well worth the trip.
McCormick is one of those interesting characters who did a lot of things in life, but his military service seems to have been foremost in his mind. He was a practicing lawyer at one time, and of course a publisher, but it was as Col. Robert McCormick that he somewhat formed his own identity.
