On October 12th 1948 Harry S. Truman gave a speech in Richmond, Indiana. (one of 7 speeches given that day.)

He spoke of Richmond's wonderful farmlands and farmers to win the crowds support. He also spoke of how the Democratic Administration supported the farmer. He then went on to say that the Republicans weakened the working man in the United States. He gave a speech later that day in Greenfield, Indiana and spoke more on the wonderful farms and farmers. He stated that the Republican congress was backwards and that the United States did not need this backwardness in the government. See what other places Truman visited this day.
