All Eyes on this East Texan...Lady Bird Johnson

First Lady Johnson was the wife of President Lyndon B. Johnson, who was president of the United States from 1963 to 1969. Claudia Alta "Lady Bird" Taylor (Johnson) was born December 22 in Karnack, Texas, a small town in Harrison County near the Louisiana border, but graduated from Marshall Senior High School. She had a love for beautifying the nation so she started a project called Society for a More Beautiful National Capital that allowed residents and tourists to plant millions of flowers because she believed that "where flowers bloom," so does hope.
