90th Anniversary of the 1919 Transcontinental Army Convoy
By Michael G. Buettner
To commemorate the 90th Anniversary of the 1919 Transcontinental Army Convoy, about seventy military vehicles from various eras approached Delphos, Ohio on Wednesday June 17th. The convoy was a mile and a half in length, and the variety of sounds (not just engines, but horns and sirens), made it a treat for both the eyes and the ears. After overnighting in Delphos at Jefferson High School, the convoy continued west to South Bend, where it was featured in a downtown parade that was planned in conjunction with the annual conference of the Lincoln Highway Association. Here are just a few of the vehicles in the patriotic procession.
