Vincennes History You Don’t Know: The 20th Century in the Town by the Wabash: “Our Times” Columns from the Vincennes Sun-Commercial
Official Endorsed Legacy Project Indiana Bicentennial
Most Hoosiers know the Revolutionary War history of Vincennes: the capture of Ft. Sackville on the Wabash from the British. But this is the story of 20th century Vincennes from newspaper columns: the dedication of the George Rogers Clark Memorial, men famous for bee-keeping and corn-husking, lengthy trials about local hogs and tomatoes, small-town bank robbers and car chases, the Greek candy store, famous people coming to town, and the Easter Parade along Main Street. This is everybody’s home town story told in a distinctively charming way.
