100th Anniversary of Allensworth's Homegoing

Chaplain Allensworth had just stepped off a streetcar in Monrovia when a motorcyclist ran him down. They rushed him to the hospital where doctors worked on him through the night. Unfortunately they could not save him and he died the next day, September 14, 1914.
