100 Years Ago This Week

What was going on 100 years ago this week? HERE'S A LINK to the St. Tammany Farmer newspaper edition at that time, June 24, 1916. The link is provided by the Library of Congress and its Chronicling America service. Some of the headlines are Mandeville Awards Contract for Seawall, District Court Adjourns In Memory of Judge Lancaster, and Quite A Number of Property Owners Ask That Their Assessments Be Lowered.
