September 30, 1869:
The dawn of our Centennial Anniversary was announced by the ringing of bells, and soon after the streets and squares began to fill with people prepared to enjoy the long expected holiday. By railroads, steamers, stages, and other available conveyances, crowds of visitors came into the city lo join in the festivities of the day; the movements of those seeking favorable points for viewing the procession, of the different companies, schools, and societies, rnarching to the rendezvous appointed for its various divisions, the reception of companies from other towns, the music by the almost ubiquitous bands, the beautifully decorated buildings, and the flags waving everywhere in the bright sunlight, all together gave the place an unwonted air of rejoicing.
