The President's Daily Diary: April 6, 1968

On April 6, 1968, President Johnson spent much of the day on the telephone monitoring the riots which had broken out in a number of major cities, including Washington, D. C., in response to the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. During the afternoon, the President met with General William Westmoreland and a number of top advisors to discuss the situation in Vietnam. General Westmorland had dinner with the President and his daughter Lynda Johnson Robb on the second floor, and he spent the night as a guest at the White House.
