October 6, 1964. The Whistle Stop campaign tour rolls along across Virginia, on into North Carolina. Lady Bird, her daughter Lynda, 100 or so members of the press, and more than a dozen white-gloved ‘hostesses” ride aboard the un-air-conditioned Lady Bird Special. 
Hospitality committees along the route gave out pennants, buttons, and other small campaign material for visitors aboard the Lady Bird Special and the crowds gathered to see Lady Bird. In the dining car, in another nod to Southern hospitality, guests were treated to specialty dishes from each state along the route: Virginia ham, North Carolina BBQ, Georgia pecan pie, and Louisiana shrimp creole were among the choices. 
In addition to the hospitality committees, travelers and dignitaries from the states could also visit with the Masters of Ceremonies, Congressman Hale Boggs and Luther Hodges, depending on which leg of the journey they were on board. The Masters of Ceremonies were also responsible for introducing Mrs. Johnson and her daughters to the crowds at each of the stops.

Cookie Gilchrist. Remember when the NFL took progressive political stances? Gilchrist would lead the successful boycott of New Orleans after African American players were denied service all over town in the days leading up to the 1965 All Star game. Gilchrist also turned down his nomination to the Canadian Football Hall of Fame for their structurally racist practices. #teachingthe60s
