Alabama Governor George Wallace is remembered for his resistance to the 1960s civil rights movement. He ran for U.S. President in 1968 on an independent ticket and won nearly 13% of the ballots cast, or about 10 million votes. Wallace is famous for saying, "I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny, and I say, segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever."
