100 Years Ago This Week

What was going on 100 years ago this week? The following link is provided by the Library of Congress and its Chronicling America service. CLICK HERE for a link to the St. Tammany Farmer newspaper edition of December 16, 1916. Some of the headlines are "Incendiary Fire in Covington Up To Grand Jury, Experience of Louisiana Boy in U.S. Navy in Mexico, and St. Paul's Win Championship Football."

It was the Christmas shopping edition, so there were plenty of interesting ads to look at. Click on the images to see a larger version.
