Cookeville American Legion


Herald Citized Newspaper (April 6, 1962)
American Legion District Commander Hubert Crawford is urging everyone to make a lot of noise this week. To be precise, he wants everyone in the city to ring bells, blow whistles, ring chimes, toot car horns and beat drums at 4 p.m. on April 19.

Crawford explained that they’ll be doing it all over the country. The American Legion is promoting the enthusiastic display of noise to celebrate Paul Revere’s historic ride on the night before the Battle of Lexington and Concord in the American Revolution.
