LBJ583In recognition of the passage of the civil rights act, the Famous Marching Presidents of Nevada City are spotlighting Lyndon Baines Johnson in 2014. Lyndon’s greatest achievement ended up being overshadowed by the Vietnam war, but history will no doubt be kinder as the memory of that debacle fades. Look forward to seeing all the chief execs in this year’s Constitution Day parade on Sunday, September 14th. Hope to see you there!

    And here all along I thought the Great Society Cassandra was the legacy that we all still suffer from. Live and learn.

      I’d say there are more than a few Americans who benefited from the civil rights act, George. In the long view, I’m fairly sure it will be remembered as a turning point in history, whereas the Great Society will be a footnote.
