151ème Régiment d'Infanterie de Ligne

151ème Régiment d'Infanterie de Ligne

The 151ème Régiment d'Infanterie de Ligne (151st Line Infantry Regiment), or 151 R.I., is an American living-history organization dedicated to perpetuating the memory of the French soldiers of the Great War (1914-1918). Our impression is that of the ordinary French foot-soldier, the Poilu. The regiment that we portray was a front-line unit that served throughout the entire war with distinction. Our membership comes from all walks of life and all age groups but what we share is a passion for portraying history as authentically and respectfully as possible. Our goals are to honor, to learn, to educate, and to have fun doing what we do.
