Main Square (McAuliffe Square)

This square honours General MacAuliffe, who heroically defended Bastogne during the German counter-offensive of December 1944. There is an American tank on display next the General's bust and a milestone from the Freedom Road, which runs from Ste-Mère-Église in Normandy to the outskirts of Bastogne, indicating the route taken by the American troops.
