From the Crazy Vault, Three Things... / 13.03.2012

The next "Three Things..." post will be about one of the most iconic monument in our city: The Washington Monument. Since the cornerstone was laid on July 4th, 1848 (check out a photo of it under construction), the Monument has seen it's fair share of history; there isn't a shortage of events to choose from, but selecting three that you aren't aware of will be a challenge. I'll forewarn you ... two of these are worthy posts for "From the Crazy Vault."

The description below is cut straight from YouTube. This is a home movie from Lady Bird Johnson during the 1960s. The LBJ Library has an entire YouTube channel dedicated to these, so check them out. They're also on Twitter and Facebook. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drgeG39hpro The footage is outside and the film is silent. The film starts with Lady Bird Johnson and others posing in front of a house somewhere in Virginia? There are views of the house and unidentified women and a man posing and then unidentified people sitting/eating at tables.
