Military vehicles that have been purchased and preserved by their new owners, who belong to the Military Vehicle Preservation Association, are retracing the original 1919 U.S. Army’s transcontinental route along the famous Lincoln Highway across the United States.

The 100th Anniversary Convoy departed from Washington, D.C. on Aug. 11, entered Iowa at Clinton on Aug. 22, and passed through Dunlap on Sunday morning at around 9:30 a.m. after spending the night in Denison.

After the drive through Dunlap on Highway 30, the convoy stopped in Woodbine for 90 minutes, parking on the historic streets in the community’s downtown so visitors could get a close-up look at the historic vehicles.

The convoy departed Woodbine and continued west on Highway 30 through Logan and Missouri Valley before turning south on old Highway 183 to Crescent and Council Bluffs.

A video of the group’s trip through Harrison County can be found online at missourivalleytimes.com. More photos of the convoy through Harrison County can be found on page 5.
