Interview with Gov. George C. Wallace
QUESTION 36
INTERVIEWER:

GOVERNOR WE ARE ALL DYING TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED IN THAT MEETING, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO TELL ME MORE OF WHAT HAPPENED IN THAT MEETING WITH PRESIDENT JOHNSON. WE'RE JUST DYING TO KNOW WHAT YOU THOUGHT ABOUT HIM AND WHAT HAPPENED.

Gov. George C. Wallace:

I don't remember its so far back, I don't, we talked about everything, we talked about the war, we talked about, we talked about, I told him I might run for governor and he was intrigued by that because his folks had supported Mar Fergeson. We didn't talk about this matter three and a half hours, no. But, I was just telling him that if I needed help I was going to call him, on him for help. I think it angered him though because then it was his troops that if anybody had to be knocked in the head, it would by Lyndon Johnson's troops and not George Wallaces troops, but I did not want anybody to, I went on television I asked people to stay away from the march they had a right to march, let them march in peace, and they did march in peace.
