Fall and winter of 1968 was a time of local elections and lunar orbits.
NEW ALBANY — Southern Indiana residents had plenty to pay attention to during the summer of 1968. The United States was at war and on the homefront there was a presidential campaign that grabbed the nation's attention.
In April 1968, all eyes were on the presidential race. And Indiana seemed to be one of the battleground states that attracted those running for president, like Sens. Robert Kennedy and Eugene McCarthy.
