November 2, 1944Photograph
The 28th Infantry Division relieved the 9th Infantry Division in the Hürtgen Forest in mid-October. They attacked the town of Schmidt in early November, with the 110th Regiment ordered to clear the woods near the Kall River. The 28th Division sustained heavy casualties in the Hürtgen and would later play a significant role in delaying the German advance in the Ardennes.
