Once our beloved 58th arrived in Europe proper, they were now considered “at war”. They received a raise in pay from $1.00 a day to $1.10 a day. The plan was to move them in stages, closer and closer to the front.
The Battalion spent one night in LeHavre.
The next morning they went to the train yard, boarded box cars and headed for the Ypres Salient. Their destination was Godersvelde, Belgium.
