Join us on Thursday, August 17 at 1 p.m. eastern for a Facebook Live event where our historians will discuss two iconic weapons used during the war—the Springfield and the Chauchat, pronounced as "Show Show." What questions do you have about these weapons and how they were used during the war? Let us know and we might ask your question live. You can submit questions ahead of time, by emailing facebook@abmc.gov or sending us a private message.
