Interview with Gov. George C. Wallace
QUESTION 30
INTERVIEWER:

WE HAVE READ IN FACT THAT, YOU MET WITH COLONEL LINGO, A DAY OR TWO BEFORE AND TOLD HIM TO BE PEACEABLE THERE…

Gov. George C. Wallace:

I met with him a day or so before the day, of the march and told him not to be there, I ordered him to stay home and on, I let him go a little short, not long after that, but one reason was disobeying an order another reason he wanted to run for sheriff of another county but the Colonel was sick. He had a bad I don't know what you call it, bone something in one of his hands and he was taking pain medicine and he really been suffering and I ordered him not to go but he went anyway.
