In 1919, a U.S. Army convoy of motorized vehicles crossed the country for the first time, mostly along the fledgling Lincoln Highway that ran from Washington, D.C., to San Francisco. Sunday morning at about 9:30 a.m., celebrating the 90th anniversary of the 3,251-mile trip, 50 or more restored vintage military vehicles again passed through McConnellsburg and Fulton County on the Lincoln Highway as residents lined the streets to greet the convoy. The 2009 Transcontinental Motor Convoy, organized by the Missouri-based Military Vehicle Preservation Association, began Saturday in Washington and expects to arrive in San Francisco in 26 days. Pictured passing the Fulton House are World War I vintage restored jeeps that could have made the original crossing. 001p1_xlg.jpg
