          January 22, 1999 - The Adams County Bicentennial Committee held a News Conference to announce that Adams County is having a Bicentennial.  We invited several historic personalities from Adams county's past. Among those accepting are Pres. John Adams, Pres. Abraham Lincoln, Pres. George Washington, Pres. Dwight Eisenhower, Mamie Eisenhower, Mary Jemison, John Digges, a Scottish Settler, a soldier from Co. K, John Steelman, John Burns and Eddie Plank. Who are these people? We are taking pictures of the events.

          Meanwhile, the Research Committee is hard at work writing history stories to be published here.
