‘Vermont Is A State I Love’ speech given by Coolidge after 1927 flood

The Vermont Historic Sites Division has released a multi-media video commemorating President Calvin Coolidge’s 1928 speech, “Vermont is a state I love.”

President Calvin Coolidge returned to his home state of Vermont in September 1928 to inspect the 1927 flood recovery efforts. He made these impromptu remarks, “Vermont is a state I love,” from the observation platform of his train in Bennington on September 21, 1928.

The three minute, 23 second video features stirring historical paintings and photos and music by Chris Burrink.
