Interview with Tom Turnipseed

What was a typical rally like, very briefly?


It was--a typical George Wallace rally, particularly in a big city in the North or South, was, was really an event. I, we had good country music and bands and so forth. Then we had a preacher that would get up and give a message on fundraising. How we all had to dig a little deeper and we'd pass the hat, and this was almost like a church type thing. And then bring Governor Wallace on. An he'd make a rip-roaring speech and so forth. It was quite an event. The crowd would be very, very excited usually, and he was, uh, quite an orator.
