Tractor ride

Jun 08, 2012
Seventy-seven tractors made their way into Washington’s Sunset Park Thursday afternoon as part of the “Greater Southeast Iowa Spring Tractor Ride.” The tractors began the day in Fremont and stopped in Keota for lunch before arriving in Washington for an afternoon snack. The tractors spent the night in Riverside before returning to Fremont Friday. The event was organized by “Hal’s Pals,” a Washington County Relay for Life team.

Horace Greeley said, "Go west, young man" to Josiah B. Grinnell, who took his advice, went west and founded Grinnell College in 1846 in Grinnell, Iowa....

 

Horace Greeley favored westward expansion. He saw the fertile farmland of the west as an ideal place for people willing to work hard for the opportunity to succeed. The phrase came to symbolize the idea that agriculture could solve many of the nation's problems of poverty and unemployment characteristic of the big cities of the East. It is one of the most commonly quoted sayings from the nineteenth century and may have had some influence on the course of American history.
