Annual Excursion of the Great Western Band

Sandusky area residents were invited to the annual excursion of The Great Western Silver Cornet Band on Thursday, August 6, 1868. The Great Western Band was formed in 1867 and was led for many years by Charles Baetz.

The steamer Evening Star was chartered for the excursion, which left at 10 a.m. from Fitzhugh’s Dock. The Evening Star carried passengers on the Great Lakes from the 1860’s through the 1890’s.
