Growing up in the beautiful but rugged Texas Hill Country helped form the man and the politician Lyndon Johnson would become. He learned about hard economic times, the value of education, and got his first taste of politics. In this biographical video, you will learn about the Johnson family, the political journey of LBJ, and his whirlwind romance with Claudia Alta "Lady Bird" Taylor.
As President, LBJ championed education, civil rights, the environment, the space program, and social programs -- all while grappling with an escalating war in Vietnam. In 1968, LBJ decided not to run for re-election, retiring to Texas. Lyndon Johnson died in 1973, two years after the opening of the LBJ Library.
