LBJ Library

by | Mar 2, 2016

We’ve been on the road for several months at the time of this post. To some it may look like a Baby Boomer walk in the past. Maybe so, but we as American’s have so much great history at our doorstep as this was the case with our visit to the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library in Austin, TX.

This is a beautiful facility located on the edge of the University of Texas campus. When you approach the building, you are taken back by the size of the structure. Inside, you are greeted by a helpful staff. The tour starts with the late President Johnson’s childhood and continues through his days as a teacher, to his political beginnings.

As a one of the many Baby Boomers, I was very young when LBJ assumed the Office of President after the tragic assassination of John F. Kennedy. Walking though the Library, you get a since of so many of the challenges and accomplishments of this President. The Library chronicles these struggles and accomplishments from the Civil Rights Movement, the Vietnam War, our travels to the Moon, and so much more.

Joan and I enjoyed not only the pictures and the many artifacts, but the actual recordings from the Oval Office where LBJ discussed the challenges with many of the leaders of the day. Regardless of your political beliefs, this is a great place to walk through this time in history with this notable leader of the day.
