TO 

His EXCELLENCY, JULES J. JUSSEBAND, 

Ambassador of France to the United States, 

who for a score of years has fostered and cemented 

the friendship between these Republics, 

THIS WORK 

A Roll of Honor for the United States 

and a Record of Appreciation from France 

is affectionately dedicated 

by the compiler. 




URING the Revolution in France, the exist- 
ence of outward marks of distinction was 
forgotten. Nobility was suppressed by the 
decrees of June 19, 1790, but provision was 
made for bestowing some token upon all who had 
assisted in the overthrow of the Bastile. The diffi- 
culties that attended the conferring of the "brevet" 
were so great that it was realized that safety lay 
in the abolition of all decorations. This was 
accomplished by the laws of July 30, 1791, and July 
28, 1793. 

The first suggestion of a "national order which 
should cause all distinctions of birth to be forgotten" 
was made on December 15, 1791, when it was pro- 
posed to confer some sort of honor upon soldiers 
for gallant conduct. This soon bore fruit in special 
acts of the convention providing crowns of laurel 
or of oak for heroes of battle and even a proposition 
to create rules for the "recognition of merit and 
reward therefor." 

During the First Consulate, the Senate prepared 
a list of "notables" or "eligibles" who could be called 
upon for any service the government might demand. 
This list did not meet with the approval of Napoleon, 
and, it is believed, he sought to counteract the polit- 
ical complexion of it by preparing an independent 
list to which should be given the name "Legion 
d'Honneur." 

The first intimation of this purpose was made 
early in May, 1802. The Act was placed before the 
Council of State for discussion on May 4, was passed 
on to the "Corps legislatif" on May 14 without hav- 
ing received the sanction of the Council and after 
five hours' discussion it was adopted by the "Corps

legislatif ' on May 19, the "Tribunal" in the mean- 
time having acted favorably upon the proposition. 
It was finally promulgated as a law on June 3. 

Up to this time, no mention had been made of a 
visible and outward sign of membership in the Legion. 
A simple decree on July 10, 1803, prescribed the shape 
and colors of the insignia. This was changed in 
1816, 1830, 1851, 1852 and 1870. 

Napoleon decreed March 1, 1808, that all members 
of the Legion should have the title of Chevalier and 
that the title should be transmitted from father to 
son. 

The first ceremony of investiture was held on July 
14, 1804. 

The promises regarding equality and heredity had 
been violated in the final ordinances of the Legion 
of Honor. Consequently the bestowal of the insignia 
was met with varying degrees of approval. Marshal 
Augerau refused to come forward when his name 
was called, Lemercier and Truguet returned their 
diplomas, Rochambeau and LaFayette refused to 
accept the honor and others sought to conceal the 
"emblem of the vanity of a courtier." Some persons, 
out of sympathy with the new regime, sought to bring 
this decoration into ridicule by creating mock deco- 
rations which they gave to the rabble to wear. But 
such care had been exercised in the selection of per- 
sons for admission into the Legion that at the second 
distribution there were no refusals. 

The original purpose of the Order can best be 
learned from Napoleon's own words : "I challenge 
anyone to show me a republic, ancient or modern, 
in which there were no distinctions. You may call 
them playthings, but men are led by playthings. I 
should not say this, perhaps, in the Council Cham- 
ber, but in the presence of men of wisdom, such 
things should be spoken. I do not believe that the 
French people love liberty and equality ; the French 
have not been changed by ten years of revolution ; 
they are Gauls as of old proud and light-hearted,

having one pre-eminent virtue honor. This virtue 
should be nourished and upon it some distinction 
should be conferred. You see how our people pros- 
trate themselves before foreign decorations ; some 
wear them, while others look upon this with sur- 
prise. Voltaire has called our soldiers Alexanders at 
five sous a, day. He was right. Do you suppose that 
men can be induced to go to war by analytical rea- 
soning? Never! It might be efficacious for the 
scholar in his study. To the soldier must be offered 
glory, honor, reward. If honors are given to sol- 
diers only, the nation would cease to exist. If, on 
the other hand, all professions should be included, 
the soldier not knowing how to read or write, would 
be proud to have as a reward for the blood he shed 
the same decoration that is worn by men of great 
scholarship, while the latter, on their part, would 
esteem more highly the recompense for their labors 
when they see it is the reward of bravery. Some 
officers may object to seeing their decorations worn 
by a priest, judge, author, artist or a simple soldier. 
But why? Is courage not always courage, and is 
blood not always blood?" 

And although the great emperor forgot his earlier 
plea for democracy in honors and instituted orders 
that were intensely aristocratic, the Legion d'Hon- 
neur which he called into existence is now by far 
the most democratic institution amongst men. No 
antecedent qualifications are demanded ; the single 
condition that must be met is superiority. Superior 
service ; superior talent ; superior achievements. No 
limit is placed on the character of service, the sort 
of talent nor the nature of the achievements beyond 
the requirement that, in some field they count for 
the betterment of France, the welfare of a people 
or the uplift of mankind. 

Coming into existence amidst the clamors for equal- 
ity it greets all men equal in the contest for its 
acquisition and, having celebrated its centennial at 
the same time when men, by their own efforts have 



12 AMERICAN LEGIONNAIRES 

been set apart in classes, it can most fittingly reward 
one with a cross and another with the more modest 
knot of ribbon. 

Looking over this institution and contemplating 
the men who have worn with pardonable pride "the 
splash of red," the least that each "Legionnaire" can 
do is to endeavor to maintain the prestige of the 
Order by becoming more worthy of the membership 
he enjoys. 

This compilation is made in the earnest desire that 
each person named herein as he notes his colleagues 
and considers the services or achievements that 
earned this distinction will realize more fully the 
great honor that has been conferred upon him and 
see how fully and promptly France shows her esteem 
and appreciation. 

* * * * 

This Directory includes the names of Legionnaires 
of France who were living at the time the manu- 
script went to the printer. An exception, however, 
was made in the case of officers decorated for serv- 
ices during the War who succumbed to wounds 
received in action or died subsequently, weakened no 
doubt, by strain or exposure incident to their war 
duties. The inclusion of their names is intended to 
augment, if it be possible, our appreciation of their 
supreme sacrifice. 

In preparing the material for this work the Com- 
piler has been greatly aided by Major William S. 
Biddle who furnished the names of Officers of the 
U. S. Army who had been decorated and kindly 
revised the list to make additions and changes in 
addresses. Most helpful assistance in preparing the 
sketches was rendered by Mr. Nils G. Radhe, 
Research Assistant, National Geographic Society.
