President Bush was in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia on the last stop of his 5-day trip to Europe. He gave a speech in Freedom Square, once called Lenin Square, in Tbilisi. Crowds had gathered in the square following the fall of the Soviet Union and after peaceful protests against government corruption in 2003, called the “Rose Revolution.”
