For John, BLUF: Great Video. Nothing to see here; just move along.
"George Graham Vest served in the United States Senate for twenty-four years, from 1879 to 1903, but the act for which he is best remembered...

At the Top Link is a link to the speech as reproduced by Actor Ronald Reagan.
Hat tip to Ann Althouse.
