The History:
The “Cote Dame Marie” name comes from a hill range located on the Hanson State Game Refuge/Camp Grayling Military Reservation and has WWI significance.   In 1918 the German Army’s last line of defense was the Hindenburg Line. The key to breaking the German line were two hills-the Cote Dame Marie and the Cote de Chatillion. The Michigan 126th Regiment found a gap in the barb wire fortifications but was pinned down by German machine gun fire.  Captain Edward Strom then led seven men to find another gap. After finding a gap they attacked up a steep hill inn a single rush without loss of life.  A full assault followed and the Hindenburg line was pierced.
