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 5, 1916. The link is provided by the Library of Congress and its Chronicling America service. Some of the headlines are "Citizens Show What Civic Pride Means To Town," Town Council Asks That Gates Be Placed at Columbia Street Railroad Crossing, and Young Lady Commended As Top Athlete for Swimming Mile And A Half In River.
