100 Years Ago This Week

What was going on 100 years ago this week? CLICK HERE for A LINK to the St. Tammany Farmer newspaper edition at that time,  August 26, 1916. The link is provided by the Library of Congress and its Chronicling America service. Some of the headlines are There May Be Racing At The Fairgrounds, One of Largest Gathering of Farmers in Court Building, and Ladies Aide Society To Present Brilliant Musical Concert.

And, indeed, there was racing at the fairgrounds, as the picture below illustrates.
