Interview with William Rutherford
QUESTION 26
INTERVIEWER:

What about that day, what do you remember of the last day, things you saw, things that were happening?

WILLIAM RUTHERFORD:

Well there were really very sad scenes, there were people with no place to go clinging to these frame shanties. It was an instant shanty town there. People with very few possessions, poor possessions, things, that, ah, you wonder why or how a human being could have their total worldly goods reluce--reduced to such a small lot of almost nothing. But, friends saying goodbye, friends being separated. Strangers who had become friends during the weeks of the, ah, Poor People's Campaign and Resurrection City, it was a very, ah, unhappy and miserable scene from every point of view. The point of view of the weather, the results of the campaign and so on.

INTERVIEWER:

Cut. Thank you.
