Liz and LadyBird: Whistlestop 1964, by Sheila Gordon. The very first female-led Presidential Whistlestop Campaign Tour was organized and accomplished by Liz Carpenter and LadyBird Johnson--two home-grown Texas women. Only two months after the Civil Rights act of 1964, the South was fiercely set against re-electing President Lyndon Johnson. The plan: send LadyBird down there on a train to soften them up. Writer/performer Sheila Gordon presents a one-woman performance depicting the first First-Lady Presidential Whistlestop Campaign Tour of 1964.
