Here are some wonderful 35 mm slide images of President Richard Nixon’s 1971 visit to Walla Walla, Washington. The photos first appeared on Bygone Walla Walla. They were taken by Howard B. Ludwigs.
Here is a brief excerpt from the speech he gave that day.
“…I would like to tell you a little about what I think the future holds for young Americans. Sometimes you may be rather discouraged about the future. We have been passing through a difficult time in this country, the longest and most difficult war in any nation’s history, a war that, however, is being brought to an end in a way that we can win a lasting peace.”
