Soapbox speaker in MarshallPosted Saturday, August 22, 2009, at 12:55 PM

Reminds of a book I read a few years ago (though I can't remember the title or author) describing the soapbox speeches given in the public square early in the 20th century. Apparently, it was a fairly common practice, especially when Big Issues like impending war ruled people's attention.
One question, Third Child: What time period was this?
