20 Berkeley County Centennial CENTENNIAL ANNIVERSARY OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE COUNTY OF BERKELEY - CITIZENS MEETING
Martinsburg(?) 1872 Bdsde, 18 x 3" 
News story which is more about the planning than about actual events. C. J. Faulkner was elected chairman. SIGNED in type by C. J. Faulkner. Lists many committee members. This is probably an off print from a Berkeley County newspaper, but rear is blank & that makes it a broadside. OCLC shows locations, neither in WVA. 7/16 (250134754)
