CONTEXT

 

Four days after meeting with Truman, Dirksen took to the floor of the House of Representatives to address his colleagues. His 13,000-word speech covered the waterfront: the trip itinerary, physical descriptions of the terrain and historic sites, the dignitaries he met, the inspections of military and civilian operations, and his conclusions about the state of the world in 1945.
