Excerpt from Marshal Foch Day, November 4, 1921 Le Jour De Gloire Est Arrive: Official Record of the Celebration Given in Honor of Marshal Ferdinand L. Foch, Indianapolis, November 4, 1921 "Marshal Foch Day, November 4, 1921," will long be remembered in Indiana history. It will take its place alongside the memorable Welcome Home Day of May 7, 1919, when the state paid glorious tribute to her returning heroes of the World War. In years to come it will be regarded as one of the epochal events in our states history, comparable only to the triumphal ovation accorded that other great Frenchman, General LaFayette, who in 1825 was officially welcomed by the citizens of Indiana. As the years go by, and as the children of later generations study the history connected with America's participation in the World War, they will speak reverently of him who guided to victory the great armies of the allied nations of the world. No man since the dawn of history ever held under his command armies even approximating in numbers those directed by this military genius, Marshal Ferdinand L. Foch. His battle front extended from the Sea of Galilee to the North Sea. The combined fighting forces of fifteen allied nations were subject to his orders. In his hands rested the fate of more than 800,000,000 free people. His commands had only to be given to be obeyed. But none can ever say that this military leader misused or abused the power that was assigned him. The realization of the unlimited power that was his made him appear all the more careful in exercising it. This military leader, a brilliant soldier and a devoted patriot, possessed that bravery and moral courage which was equalled only by his modesty. As long as the history of free peoples is studied, and as long as the spirit of patriotism is kept alive, the name of Marshal Foch will be respected and honored.
