Edison Recalls Milan
I also recall a public square filled at times with farmers teams and also what seemed to be to be an immense number of teams that came to town bringing oak staves for barrels. I can just remember seeing a number of Prairie Schooners encamped in front of our house. This was about 1849 or 1850, when I was but a mere infant and I learned afterwards that these Prairie Schooners were carrying adventurers going to California to hunt for gold. Yours very truly, Signed-Thomas Edison. The Sandusky Register, Decemeber 31, 1922.
