News from around the state on this date:

In 1894, Fessenden was itching to take over the Wells County seat, which they took from Sykeston ten days earlier. Sykeston lost the election fair and square, but things weren’t moving fast enough for some; so, a number of Fessenden residents took 20 wagons to Sykeston and forcibly took possession of county records.

These other events on this date come from 1911.
