Interview with Gov. George C. Wallace
QUESTION 42
INTERVIEWER:

WHEN THE MARCHERS FINALLY GOT TO MONTGOMERY AND MET OUT HERE THERE WAS A GROUP OF 21 PEOPLE WHO WANTED TO COME AND TALK TO YOU AT THE END OF THE MARCH BUT YOU DIDN'T WANT TO MEET WITH THEM THAT DAY. WHY DIDN'T YOU WANT TO MEET WITH THEM THAT DAY?

Gov. George C. Wallace:

I don't recall why, but I do recall that I met with them a few days later. And I could recall this, they made a, I had some pictures here on my desk, small pictures, and one of the ladies walked up and says, are these souvenirs, I said yes, he says how about finding one for me. So I said to my friend, whatever his name was, then some more came forward, one of them reached over and whispered to me and says I've always voted for you. They may deny that now but that's the truth, I'll take a lie detector test on that, nothing else.
