In the summer of 2009, the Military Vehicle Preservation Association celebrated the 90th Anniversary of the First Transcontinental Army Convoy (and the 200th birthday of Abraham Lincoln) with a coast-to-coast re-creation across the world's largest memorial to Lincoln, the Lincoln Highway. The Convoy passed through the City of DeKalb, Illinois on Saturday, June 20, 2009 and local online journalist Mac McIntyre captured some video footage as the vehicles rolled by. Thanks to the airport in Rochelle, three airplanes flew overhead to welcome the Convoy.
