A message from our Chaplain:

March 2023

In war, no one wants to die. Certainly, no one wants to be the last one to die. The First World War ended on November 11th at 1100 hours. November 11th began as a gray, cold and foggy day. The Americans and Germans alike assumed the guns would remain silent. The war was essentially over since all belligerents agreed to the peace terms; all that remained was the official signing of the Armistice.

The allied commanders were given orders from General Foch, the Commander-in-Chief of all Allied Forces on the western front, to keep pressing the attack against the Germans. Even though the Allied Commanders were fully aware that the Germans agreed to sign the Armistice, they followed orders. The orders were given to advance the attack, much to the surprise of the American and German forces. The orders were given to regain as much French territory as possible. Then sixteen minutes before the 11th hour the attack was to stop and hold all gains of territory. This final attack upon the German lines cost America 320 more lives and many more wounded.

The last man killed was 23-year-old Henry Gunther, a German-American. Gunther was drafted in the American army in July of 1918. He was promoted to supply Sargent. However, the censors read one of his letters to a friend urging his friend not to enlist. Since German-Americans were already placed under suspicion, Gunther’s letter only confirmed that he was Un-American and held sympathies towards Germany. He was demoted to private. This came as a surprise to the normally gregarious Gunther. In addition to his demotion in rank, he received a letter from his fiancée breaking off their engagement. Despondent over these events, Henry volunteered to be a runner. A runner was considered to be one of the most dangerous jobs in the army. During one of his missions as a runner Gunther was wounded. Being wounded he could have opted to be sent back home, but he elected to stay to prove that he was loyal to America and to his 313th Regiment.

On the morning of November 11th, the order was given to attack the German lines. Gunther advanced with his unit demonstrating bravery as he pressed the attack. When the advance was halted, however, Private Henry Gunther with fixed bayonet, continued his advancement as the dense fog lifted. The men in his unit called out to him to stop, even the Germans in broken English urged him to stop, the war was over. Gunther for reasons only known to him continued his one-man assault, ending when a burst of German machine-gun fire struck him in the head. Private Henry Gunther died at 1059 that damp, gray November morning. His actions on that final day of the war earned Private Henry Gunther the Distinguished Service Cross and in 1923 he was posthumously promoted to Sargent.

I am not sure why Henry Gunther refused to stop his attack. Some of the men in his unit thought Gunther wanted to prove he was a loyal American. Some felt it was because he lost his fiancée. Others surmised that it was a combination, the loss of his fiancée, demotion of rank and it was his last chance to prove he was loyal to America. Whatever the reason, Henry Gunther would have survived the war and returned to his bank job in Maryland had the order to attack not been given. I am not going to second guess the generals who gave the orders to attack all across the Western Front on the morning of November 11, 1918. I’ll leave that to the historians. The last attack of the war cost the allied forces 2,738 lives and many more were wounded, and the German causalities were over 11,000. War is brutal and I am not sure if we humans will ever stop fighting. We can only pray and hope that nations will find a better way to solve their differences, and no one else will ever be the first or last person to die in war.
