Happy early Memorial Day and #FlashbackFriday from the Whitewater Historical Society!
This week’s photo shows members of the Whitewater American Legion Post Color Guard parading on Main Street. One of the oldest Posts in the United States, Post 173 was named after William Graham. Graham joined the Army in 1912 after attending the Whitewater Normal School and was the first Whitewater soldier killed in action in World War I.
