1919 Military Convoy to Pass through Carroll

A bit of history will be visiting the area on Tuesday, June 23 as a 1919 Commemorative Military Convoy traveling across the country on the Lincoln Highway will be passing through Carroll and Crawford Counties and making a lunch stop in Denison. It is estimated that the military convoy will involve approximately 75 military vehicles and over 80 people. The military vehicles involved will cover all eras from World War I to current-issue military vehicles.

The convoy is noting the 90th anniversary of the 1919 Transcontinental Convoy and is being taken in conjunction with the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission's celebration of the 200th birthday of our 16th president this summer.

The estimated time they will pass through Carroll is 10:00 a.m. and they are expected to pass through Westside and Vail before noon on June 23. For more information, visit their website
