*******************************************

While many African Americans eagerly volunteered to
join the Allied cause following America’s entry into WWI, the U.S. armed forces remained
segregated throughout the WarI. Over 350,000 African Americans would serve with the
American Expeditionary Force on the Western Frontw by the time of the armistice with
Germany on November 1918.

While many African American units were relegated to support
roles, the HARLEM HELL FIGHTERS of the 369th Infantry Regiment would become one of
America’ most honored, medaled and experienced combat regiments.

General John “Black Jack” Pershing
assigned the 369th to the 16th Division of the French Army.

With the French, the Harlem Hellfighters fought at
Chateau-Thierry and Belleau Wood; they helped to repel the German offensive and launched a
counteroffensive.

The 369th would spend 191 days in combat on the
front lines – longer than any other American unit in the war.

The 369th was the first Allied unit to reach the
Rhine.

“My men never retire, they go forward or they
die,” said Colonel Hayward.

171 members of the 369th were awarded the French
Legion of Merit.

  And six were posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for
actions in World War I.

The extraordinary valor of the 369th earned them fame in Europe
and America and opened the door for many African Americans to enjoy freedom and adoration
when they went overseas throughout the 1940′ to the 1960′.

Newspapers headlined the feats of Corporal Henry
Johnson and Private Needham Roberts. In May 1918 they were defending an isolated lookout
post on the Western Front, when they were attacked by a German unit. Though wounded, they
refused to surrender, fighting on with whatever weapons were at hand. They were the first
Americans awarded the Croix de Guerre, and they were not the only Harlem Hellfighters to
win awards; 171 of its officers and men received individual medals and the unit received a
Croix de Guerre for taking Sechault.

In December 1917, when Colonel Hayward’s men had departed from
New York City, they had not been permitted to participate in the farewell parade of New
York’s National Guard, the so-called Rainbow division. The reason Hayward was given was
that “black is not a color in the Rainbow.”

When they returned home in February of 1919, Colonel
Hayward pulled every political string he could to assure his men would be rewarded with a
victory parade.

Crowds thronged New York City’s Fifth Avenue as the
369th marched to the music of their now-famous regimental jazz band leader, James Reese
Europe. After the parade, city officials honored the troops at a special dinner.

World War I initiated changes on the home front that permanently
affected the lives of Americans, black and white. While defense production was up, the war
had cut off the flow of immigrant labor. Workers were needed in the North, and African
Americans seized the opportunity.

African Americans left the rural South & Jim
Crow, lynchings, and oppressive economic conditions.

The Great Migration — the most massive internal
migration in American history — brought several million African Americans North before
the Depression stemmed its flow.

With the migrants, black culture entered the
American mainstream, changing it forever. Musical styles never heard before outside the
South became “hot.”

The Jazz Age and a Harlem Renaissance blossomed into
one of the nation’s greatest artistic outpourings

On the political front, participation in World War I
did little to directly advance the equal rights of African Americans.

UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE all watches offered by GSW have been
SERVICED. Some required REPAIR AND RESTORATION! Normal Servicing of Mechanical Watches by
an EXPERT PROFESSIONAL will run between $180.00 to 580.00, depending on the complication
of the movement and that is WITHOUT parts that may be required. SERVICING means
DISASSEMBLING THE ENTIRE WATCH AND MOVEMENT, CLEANING SAME, OILING, LUBING AND
REASSEMBLING, timing and Sealing. RESTORATION is a separate service from SERVICING and may
include CRYSTAL, DIAL, HANDS, CASE, LUGS and BAND. So, WHEN YOU VIEW VINTAGE AND CLASSIC
WATCHES OFFERED BY OTHER VENDORS/DEALERS, the question is: WAS THE WATCH SERVICED?
******************************* All watches, from mechanical to quartz devices, require
periodic cleaning and inspection. GSW provides both cleaning and repair services with our
main specialty that of restoring and repairing classic & vintage watches. GSW has
established parts accounts with the oldest watch parts houses in the world as well as a

worth maintaining as it will increase your pleasure of ownership and also enhance the
resale or trade-in value. If you plan on passing your watch on to the next generation,
skilled periodic maintenance will be greatly appreciated in the future. Visit our studio
