The LBJ Library: Video: President Lyndon Johnson’s Meeting With Governor George C. Wallace, 3/18/65


This post was originally posted at The New Democrat on Blogger

President Lyndon Johnson talking about the need for Alabama Governor George C. Wallace’s need to enforce the law in Alabama. And in this case the law was a Federal court order that said civil rights marchers in Alabama had a right to march and that Alabama was responsible for keeping the peace and keep order in Alabama. What Governor Wallace I believe was trying to tell the President was that keeping order during this march would be difficult. And what President Johnson was saying was that he would help him do that in anyway he can.
