Special | 55m 40s | Video has closed captioning.

We start in 2006 with the series Maine Experience, which takes us back to 1950 as we see the events that led up to her taking her brave stand. In the second half of our show we feature a 1992 episode of Personally Speaking. Host Patsy Wiggins has a half hour conversation with Margaret that touches on her run in with McCarthy, her 1964 presidential bid, the Margaret Chase Smith Library and more.
