March 15, 1929

Interesting article from the Advocate Messenger, March 15, 1929:
Early Tuesday morning in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, a young man was found huddling outside the gates of the replica of Old Fort Harrod. The hostess brought him inside and after accepting food and drink, he told his story. He was a freshman at the University of Kentucky and was “pledging” a fraternity. His instructions were to make a drawing of the Fort and bring back a jug of water from old Graham Springs. After resting as a guest of the park, the weary young man started out on his long trek back to Lexington, carrying a jug of mineral water from Graham’s Old Saloon Springs and a map of the Fort.
