Fred Sachtleben isn't proud that he had ignored his father's stories of pioneer adventure, but he's making up for it now. Fred's dad was one of the first people to travel the then brand new Lincoln Highway from Chicago to San Francisco in 1915. That was all ancient history until just after Fred's father passed away and he found an honorary medal and a handwritten diary from that journey. Our interview is about that rediscovery and setting the record straight, a task to which Fred Sachtleben and his friends at the Indiana Lincoln Highway Association are dedicated.
