Interview with John McLaurin
QUESTION 13
INTERVIEWER:

NOW DO YOU THINK THERE WAS, THIS WAS A POLITICAL ACTION OR DO YOU THINK GOVERNOR BARNETT HAD HIS OWN REAL CONVICTIONS, HIS OWN PLAN FOR HOW TO ACT?

John McLaurin:

I think Governor Barnett was sincere and I think he was leading the people in a manner he thought they should be lead, uh, I think there was a lot of discussion on Sunday back and forth between Washington and the Governor's Mansion. However, I don't believe that any uh, plan was ever cut. I don't think he could ever agree on anything.
