With a prayer and water-sprinkling, Rev. John Largen of United Lutheran Seminary blessed the Motor Transport Corps re-enactors as they began their 3,200-mile westward to San Francisco.

“Protect and guide this transcontinental motor convoy as it continues on its journey to San Francisco,” Largen prayed shortly after sunrise Monday morning as crew members of the 50-vehicle caravan prepared to depart from their weekend stopover in Gettysburg.
