Geocache Description:

Daqngerous footing here!  Be very careful!

#33 in the VPS.


Iowa Henry Wallace served as US Secretary of Agriculture before becoming Franklin Roosevelt's second vice-president.  Wikipedia notes: 

"On May 8, 1942, Wallace delivered his most famous speech, which became known by the phrase 'Century of the Common Man', to the Free World Association in New York City. This speech, grounded in Christian references, laid out a positive vision for the aftermath of the Second World War, beyond the defeat of the Nazis. He laid out a blueprint for a world of shared prosperity and in which colonialism and economic exploitation would be banned. The speech, and the book of the same name which appeared the following year, proved quite popular, but earned Wallace enemies among the Democratic leadership, business leaders, conservatives and allied leaders like Winston Churchill.

Dangerous footing going to the cache and returning.  Be safe.  Have fun!
