The Americans who fell in and around Valkenburg

Although there was heavy fighting in and around Valkenburg between the 14th and 17th of September, 1944, “only” six soldiers of the Old Hickory Division were killed. They are Quentin Begore and Sam Viviano on the sixteenth, Henri Morgan, John Reeves, Cleaver Buckler and Peter Spoganetz on the seventeenth. All six belonged to the 119th regiment, the part of the Old-Hickory division, which liberated Valkenburg. They were immortalized by Albert Widdershoven in 1994 in the municipal cave. Photo by J.P.
