Vimy Ridge:

Vimy Ridge, France was the location of one of the most significant battles of World War I.  It was taken and held by Canadian troops from April 9th to 12th, 1917. The bravery and sacrifice of the men will always be remembered.  The victory came at a terrible cost with ten thousand Canadians dead or wounded on the 9th: the worst day’s losses for Canada in the war. 

The battle of Vimy Ridge marks a significant turning point in Canadian history, where the four Canadian divisions fought together as a unified fighting force for the first time. The impressive victory over German forces is often cited as the beginning of Canada’s evolution from Dominion to independent nation.
