Oak

Are you or someone you know a descendant or relative of the men listed below? If so, we would like to hear from you. These men were former LSU students and alumni who made the ultimate sacrifice in World War I and are honored in the Memorial Oak Grove on campus. The grove is being reimagined as a prominent place of remembrance and on Nov. 11, the 100th anniversary of the end of the war, a rededication ceremony will be held. The general public is invited to attend.  Details of the ceremony will be forthcoming. 

The Memorial Oak Grove was dedicated on March 12, 1926 to honor the thirty LSU men who lost their lives in the war. Thirty-one live oak trees were planted, one for each of the fallen and one for an unknown soldier, as a living reminder of their sacrifice and service to the country.  Plans are in the works to improve the landscaping and to provide an educational component to tell the story of those who are memorialized, the grove itself, and the war.
