Interview with Colonel Floyd Mann
QUESTION 72
INTERVIEWER:

DESCRIBE THE SCENE, VERY BRIEFLY OUTSIDE THE CHURCH.

Col. Floyd Mann:

Well, the outside the church, the crowd just continued to build and uh at one time there was just thousands of people were there and I think those marshals, some of them were just about inexperienced at handling a crowd like that as some of the police were in Alabama, and they began to throw teargas, and they threw it against the wind. And the gas began to uh affect the marshals more than it was the people that they were trying to control. So we just had an awful situation there for a while.
