TASTY TID-BIT: THE FREEDOM TRAIN
The United States has seen two national 'Freedom Trains'. The 1947–1949 Freedom Train was a special exhibit train that toured the United States in the later half of the 1940s. A similar train called the American Freedom Train toured the country for the United States Bicentennial celebration in 1975–1976. Both trains were painted in special red, white and blue paint schemes, and both toured the 48 contiguous states with displays of Americana and related historical artifacts. The two trains took different routes around the 48 states, but they both stopped for public displays in each of them... The 1947–1949 Freedom Train was proposed by Attorney General Tom C. Clark as a way to reawaken Americans to their taken-for-granted principles of liberty in the post-war years... The Freedom Train even had an official song, written by Irving Berlin and performed by Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters. The train's first public display stop occurred in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on September 17, 1947.... A second Freedom Train, The American Freedom Train, toured the country in 1975–1976 to commemorate the United States Bicentennial. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
REMEMBER... FREEDOM IS EVERYBODY'S JOB!!!
