- Historic Courthouse
The Lancaster County Historical Commission and Andrew Jackson State Park will co-sponsor an event at the historic courthouse from 3 – 5 on Sunday afternoon, November 18. The program will feature historian Scott Farb, who will do a presentation on the 30th Infantry Division in WWI. Nicknamed the “Old Hickory Division” because most of the men came from National Guard units from South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee, it was famed for breaking through Germany’s defensive Hindenburg Line. This action was part of a series of Allied assaults during the Hundred Days Offensive, which led to the Armistice on November 11, 1918. There will also be a display featuring artifacts from what was called “The Great War.”
Refreshments after the event will be provided by the Historical Commission.
The historic courthouse museum is located at 100 North Main Street in Lancaster and admission is free.
