A Soldier's Story: Corporal Freddie Stowers

Corporal Freddie Stowers was born on January 12, 1894, in Sandy Springs, South Carolina.

He worked as a farmhand before being drafted into the U.S. Army in 1917 in response to World War I.

Corporal Freddie Stowers was assigned to Company C, 1st Battalion, 371 Infantry Regiment, assigned to the French Army's 157th "Red Hand" division.

During the assault on Cote 88, while being mowed down, his unit kept attacking.  Eventually, he and his team took the hill near Ardeuilet Montfauxelles. Unfortunately, Corporal Freddie Stowers was killed in this action, dying on September 28, 1918.  He is buried in Ardeuiel-et-Montfauxelles Ardennes France.
