This album is something different it is stories of the American Adventure told by Senator Everett McKinley Dirksen. Side One: Prologue; Gallant Me; The Story Of The Mayflower And The Mayflower Compact; The Story Of The Battle For Independence; The Story OF the Flag; The Star-Spangled Banner and on side two The Story Of Gettysburg Address; The Story Of The Statue Of Liberty; Epilogue and Pledge Of Allegiance To The Flag.
Everett McKinley Dirksen is certainly one of the great orators of America. His public speaking has been learned in the old and traditional ways, honed through years of public appearances "on the stump" where he mastered the subtleties of speaking to, convincing and moving an audience.
This is a true and very enjoyable album. This album has never been opened and is in mint condition.
