The Village of Maywood is an Illinois home-rule corporation that was organized on October 22, 1881. The Village is named for May, the deceased daughter of Colonel William T. Nichols, Maywood’s founder. Maywood was home of the 33rd Tank Company, Illinois National Guard (Company B) with the Armory. On November 25, 1940, 122 men of Company B were inducted into active service to become part of the famous 192nd Tank Battalion, which fought on the Philippine Islands during World War II. The unit became part of the notorious “Bataan Death March” in April 1942. Only 41 men returned to Maywood alive. In recognition of the enormous sacrifice endured by members of the 192nd Tank Battalion and to honor the soldiers from Maywood who died on the Bataan death march, Congress designated Maywood the Village of Eternal Light.
