Last week, a California filmmaker was in Marion County retracing the path that 1,300 men blazed back in 1894 as they marched to the steps of Congress. The group was protesting the worst economic times in our history in hopes of getting a public works system implemented. After spending a week held up in Des Moines, the were given lumber to make rafts and continue their trip that took them through Marion County as they headed east.
