The echos of the old Republic

Senegal– a traditional French ally who provided the Republic the use of the famed Tirailleurs Sénégalais for twin World Wars as well as Algeria and Vietnam Indochina– produced some of the most reliable of French colonial troops for generations. These hardy Senegalese riflemen were stationed throughout overseas France to include North Africa, where their descendants endure in their own unique enclaves.

Here’s a look at one such group in Lebanon today, where the riflemen landed in 1919 in the aftermath of the Ottoman Empire’s implosion, and a century later their legacy remains.
