Background: VISNEWS filmed on May 6 at Gettysburg when President Eisenhower showed his guest Sir Winston Churchill round his farm of about five hundred acres, with its notable herd of black Angus cattle.
The tour was made in the President's electric Golf cart, with Sir Winston peering out form beneath a broad-brimmed Western cowboy hat.
The two had flown there from Washington in a Marine Corps helicopter, and during the flight had hovered over the historic battlefield of Gettysburg, which Sir Winston had never visited before.
He had studied the story of what happened there so thoroughly that when the President described the fighting he was able to talk to Ike about the individual Commanders of the Union and Confederate forces who there had staged one of the classic fights of all time.
