Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

he The convoy departed from Washington, D.C., on Aug. 11, and will travel the highway to San Francisco.

In 1919, the US Army decided to proceed with a plan to traverse the newly-formed Lincoln Highway with the objectives to say "thanks" to the American public for their support during WWI, put their equipment through rigorous testing to see how road conditions affected military travel and to conduct a transcontinental recruiting drive and demonstrate the need for good roads.
