LE CIMETIERE AMERICAIN DE NORMANDIE et LE MEMORIAL
Le cimetière occupe le site du cimetière provisoire de St. Laurent, créé par la Première armée des Etats-Unis le 8 juin 1944, qui fut le premier cimetière américain de la Deuxième guerre mondiale sur le sol européen. Il se trouve à l'extrémité nord de la petite route de 800 mètres qui le sépare de la départementale. Sa surface est de 698 m2. Il abrite les tombes de 9 387 soldats américains, pour la plupart tombés pendant le débarquement de juin 1944 et les combats qui l'ont suivi, mettant fin à la guerre. Sur les murs du jardin semi-circulaire à l'est du mémorial, sont gravés les noms de 1 557 Américains qui ont donné leur vie au service de leur pays, mais dont les restes n'ont pu être retrouvés ou identifiés.
