On Saturday, Sept. 21, The Illinois State Historical Society will unveil and dedicate “The First Beatle in America – George Harrison” historical marker at Capitol Park in Benton in southern Illinois. The marker, which commemorates the “Quiet Beatle” and his visit to the United States in September 1963 – six months before The Beatles came to America as a band – will be unveiled at 2 p.m. in the community park, just southeast of the county square. Special guests include Harrison’s sister, Louise, Jim Kirkpatrick (author of Before He Was Fab), Bob Bartel (producer of the documentary film A Beatle in Benton), and others. The marker is sponsored by The Illinois State Historical Society, the Franklin County Historic Preservation Society and Beatles Fans Everywhere. For more information, call 217-525-2781.
