Fostoria Montgomery County Texas Patriotism
Submitted by: Elaine Walton Lewis
Conroe Courier ‑ April 19, 1917

Fostoria, April 11 ó A large crowd of whites and negroes gathered at the flag pole near the Foster Lumber Co.ís office today where patriotic services were held. The services were opened by singing America. Rev. D. W. Gardner offered prayer, following with several fitting remarks for the occasion. He then introduced Rev. L. B. Saxon of Palestine, who spoke for several minutes in eloquent terms regarding patriotism and loyalty to the old Stars and Stripes. Old Glory was then hoisted, and the patriotic spirit was plainly manifested.
