Lincoln Highway Association Meeting in Ohio

The May 1st Bucyruss Telegraph-Forum reported on the 14th annual meeting of Ohio's LHA. Ohio League President Mike Buettner presented special guest LHA President Jan Shupert-Arick.

An Exemplary Friend of the Lincoln Highway Award was presented to Kirk Slusher of ODOT's District 1 who went above and beyond in his efforts to coordinate federal transportation enhancement monies to create a SR 696 (and LH) bridge over I-75 at Beaverdam, Ohio. This beautiful bridge also prominantly displays the LH logo.

A presentation on the Battles of Sanduskey and Olentangy was given. American forces were under the command of Col. William Crawford, and these battles took places laong stretches that would eventually become the Lincoln Highway. I've never heard of these two battles, so will have to look then up.
