George, IA. 55 miles. Overcast, cooler, showers. Grass/gravel lot. Circus kicks off the 125th anniversary of the founding of George -- taking place over this holiday weekend. Strong presale, though rain could dampen gate. Always worth remembering that while the 4th of July is Independence Day in the US, the days leading leading up to the holiday mark the anniversay of Gettysburg -- one of history's bloodiest battles where in 1863 we almost tore ourselves apart. There were plenty of Iowa volunteers in that war.
