Camp de Châlons
The camp de Châlons, also known as camp de Mourmelon, is a military camp of circa 10,000 hectares near Mourmelon-le-Grand. It was created at the behest of Napoleon III and opened August 30, 1857 during the Second French Empire.
The camp is used for military manoeuvres, and cavalry training, along with the neighbouring 2,500 hectare large Camp de Moronvilliers.
During the Second World War, it served as the quarters for the US Army's 501st Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division - who was recovering from the fighting in Holland and waiting on replacements. The regiment would soon play a crucial role in the Battle of Bastogne.
