NARRATOR 1: This Indiana Bicentennial Minute is made possible by the Indiana Historical Society and the law firm of Krieg Devault.

Images of various vice presidents appear on screen, following by historical images of the Indiana State House and people sitting in bleachers holding American flags.

JANE PAULEY: Colfax, Hendricks, Fairbanks, Marshall, and Quayle, five Hoosiers elected vice president. Indiana has been a critical swing state and ten Hoosiers picked for the national ticket.

An image of President Grant and Colfax is shown, followed by a painting of Thomas Hendrix.

JANE PAULEY: Schuyler Colfax was Speaker of the House in Washington before serving as General Grant’s vice president. Governor Thomas Hendrix was Grover Cleveland’s running mate.

Portraits of Fairbanks, Marshall, and Quail are shown.

JANE PAULEY: Charles Fairbanks was elected with Teddy Roosevelt. Governor Thomas Marshall was Woodrow Wilson’s VP and in 1988 senator Dan Quayle was elected with George H.W. Bush. Each served the country well but it was Marshall who said “What this country needs is a really good five cent cigar.”

Text on the screen reads visit indianahistory.org for more information, with a man smoking a cigar in the background.

JANE PAULEY: I’m Jane Pauley with this Indiana Bicentennial Minute.

NARRATOR: Made possible by the Indiana Historical Society and the law firm of Krieg Devault.
