A FAMILIAR NIGHT SCENE TO THE ONES WHO WERE OVER THERE Just like a Fourth of July celebration. Star shells bursting to signal the artillery, flares to light up No-Man's Land, and the boom, boom of cannon, which sounded like huge fire crackers. Slow, but sure, we moved on through the Argonne. From Tar-Heel War Record (In the Great World War).

From History of the 113th Field Artillery 30th Division.
