The Transcontinental Motor Convoy, a history exhibit on wheels, rolled through Hancock and Wyandot counties on Saturday. The convoy, which includes about 70 historic military vehicles, is marking the 100th anniversary of the U.S. Army’s first transcontinental motor convoy in 1919. This convoy left Washington, D.C., on Monday, retracing the original 1919 route along the historic Lincoln Highway. It made a stop at Upper Sandusky High School for lunch on Saturday, and drove through Hancock County on County Road 304 (the old U.S. 30). The convoy stopped in Delphos for the night. It will take about 37 days total to reach its destination of San Francisco, California, on Sept. 14. (Photos by Kevin Bean / The Courier)
