Military On the Move Through Sycamore in 1942
From the April 26, 2017, MidWeek, "Looking Back."
1942, 75 Years Ago.
"Downtown people in Sycamore were given another mild taste of war time activity. For hours, troops and guns rumbled through the city. They were bound for spring training areas.
"Censorship chiefs have asked that details regarding such movement be not mentioned in such detail as to tell the destination, regiments and numbers and similar data. Suffice to say here that the movement smacked of continued preparation for the days to come when the battle will become heavier and more realistic for Americans."
