Pages of History: Soldiers bivouac at fairgrounds

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, August 1939.

Crescent City took on a military appearance last night as 379 officers and men of the Ninth Field Artillery, Headquarters Battery, B.N. and a company of Sixth Engineers from Fort Lewis, Washington, bivouacked at the county fairgrounds.

The soldiers are en route from their northern post to summer maneuvers at Monterey and are traveling in a fleet of Army trucks with nine pieces of heavy artillery on huge trailers.

Local racehorse wins

Seagayle, Burtschell and Hiller’s promising thoroughbred, proved a sensation at the Sonoma County fair this week, winning the inaugural handicap last Saturday, paying his backers $17.00.

Seagayle also won the Governor’s handicap by a length and paid backers $4.20, $3.00 and $2.60 on a $2.00 ticket. A number of local people held tickets on the horse.

Supervisors oppose plan
