Summary
This is a recording of the annual Democratic Party fund raising event, known as the Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner, held at the Hotel John Marshall in Richmond, Virginia, on 28 February 1958. The recording begins with a brief part of a speech in which Harry Flood Byrd discusses his decision to run for re-election to the United States Senate. Byrd is followed by Governor J. Lindsay Almond's long introduction of the main speaker, Herman E. Talmadge, United States Senator from Georgia. The remainder of the recording is of Talmadge's speech, which focuses on praising Virginia's policy of Massive Resistance in response to the Supreme Court's decision of forced integration in the public schools, while criticizing the lack of government spending on the military. He asks of the attendees, "what kind of leadership do we have which squanders millions on an arrogant, illegal and unconstitutional invasion of the sovereign State of Arkansas, yet, does not have one red cent for fuel to power our bombers to be used in retaliation should a surprise hydrogen-bomb attack be launched against us?" He rounds out his speech with criticism of the federal leaders for spending too much money on foreign aid, at the expense of domestic programs at home
