WWI 13th Engineers

WWI 13th Engineers

(OP)
Hey you history/engineering buffs out there!

I'm looking for information on the 13th Engineers (US) who participated in WWI in France - circa 1917-1918.  My grandfather rode the supply trains and I'm trying to get some history on their experiences as well as photos.

Anyone have any data/websites/etc.????

RE: WWI 13th Engineers

Just the other day I was in the local library and found a very interesting text on the Corps of Engineers.  The book was a rather large volumne and dealt with the two theaters of operation.  I am not sure whether it went back to WWI or not.  Since I seen your post I have been looking for such books.  

I did find a History of the US Army Corps of Engineers which was published in 1998.  I would like to think that more valuable references are listed in that text.

Will keep looking.
