LBJ, our 36th President, was born August 27th, 1908 in Stonewall, Texas. I believe he was one of our most significant Presidents. 1) He helped pass the Civil Rights bill of 1964 and the Voting Rights bill of 1965. 2) He helped start programs to assist the poor i.e. HeadStart, food stamps. 3) He was instrumental in getting the Medicare program started to help elderly Americans with healthcare costs. He made a few mistakes; the escalation of the Vietnam War being one of them. But, I still admire and respect him for what he got right.
