Season 2, Episode 36: Lyndon Johnson and the LBJ Ranch

There’s no place like…Texas?! Lyndon Johnson never strayed too far from the Johnson Ranch outside Stonewall, except when serving in Washington. LBJ was born, lived, and is buried on the same piece of property, and his beloved ranch bears his imprint. Learn about Lyndon’s political rise; his vice presidency and Presidency; his wife, Lady Bird, and daughters; as well as his home!
