C-SPAN's Local Content Vehicles take American History TV on the road. We feature the history of Des Moines, Iowa the weekend of July 19-21.
Hosted by our Mediacom cable partners, we learned about the Great Flood of 1993, historic Fort Des Moines and the Iowa State Fair. We explored the history of the Iowa Caucuses, toured the Iowa State Capitol and spoke with Gov. Terry Branstad. We also visited the Wallace Centers of Iowa County Life Center, where we learned about American agriculture and agricultural policy.
