June 9 – On this day in Montana history in 1948 Montana was experiencing the power of President Harry S. Truman’s famous “Whistle Stop Campaign” train tour of the nation that carried him to a major upset in the presidential election. More than 10,000 Montanans turned out to hear him talk at the Naranche Stadium in Butte, and thousands more lined up to see his train pass through the state.
