Lodi citizens thought they would get to greet President Warren G. Harding on a train whistle-stop speaking tour in the summer of 1923. But instead, the train bearing the president's coffin made the slow trip through Lodi in the dark of night.

On Saturday, July 28, 1923, the Lodi Sentinel reported that Lodians might have the chance to see President Harding as he rode a train from Oregon to San Francisco the next morning. The Lodi Business Men's association, precursor to today's Chamber of Commerce, joined Sacramento and Stockton, cities also along the main Southern Pacific Railroad line, in sending telegrams urging the president to stop.
