The grave of General George S. Patton is located in the Luxembourg American Cemetery in Hamm, Luxembourg. Established on December 29, 1944 it contains the remains of 5,076 American soldiers most of whom died in the Battle of the Bulge. When the unexpected German offensive action into the Ardennes Forest began Patton and his 3rd Armored Division were in the Alsace, in the east of France. Between December 18-31 133,178 vehicles covered the 100 miles and carried 41,933 tons of materials from the Alsace to Bastogne. This was the last German offensive of the war and the last gasp of the Nazi regime. After Patton’s death in a car accident in 1945 he joined many of his men in their final rest here.
