The '70s: A bicentennial minute in Colonial Williamsburg, VA. President Ford, the Governor of Virginia and wife amused by my daughter's two-handed wave.
January 1976. We were surprised the president rode so exposed and no more than 30 feet from the crowds on the sidewalk. He had already been the target of two assassination attempts. This was near the beginning of his election-year campaign. The scandals of the Nixon administration and his pardon of Nixon sealed his defeat to Jimmy Carter that fall.
