This is a chronological review of the world around Donald Trump since 2015. I did not think this was a “hit piece”, unless you’re Lindsey Graham
I enjoyed The Unexpected President, despite the lack of documents left to us by Arthur. He destroyed all his papers towards the end of his life.
Mr. Hill memoir is an eloquent, intelligent story covering his 17 years in the Secret Service, many of them spent protecting Presidents and first ladies
The author states that this part of Roosevelt’s life is often glossed over by biographers and historians, they don’t see it as very important. As well all know, however, it is the small moments, the unassuming ones which catch us off guard that sometimes create the deepest impact
An excellent biography of a President who was probably the most influential person to hold office between Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln
The most fascinating part, for me, was how each person governed before and after office as if the office was sacred and kept it that way despite political differences.
The book follows Reagan from his youth, his Hollywood career, his presidency (which gets the lion share of the book of course) and to his death.
An account of the assassination of President James A. Garfield. Mr. Garfield was the 20th President of these US and the second to be assassinated in office.
Andrew Jackson was born in northern South Carolina and at the age of 13 was already a member of the Revolutionary Army and a prisoner of the British. After securing his release, his mother left him an orphan at the age of 14, but Jackson thrived and became a lawyer through apprenticeships. By 1788 Jackson became the solicitor for Nashville, a frontier town.
As much as reading about the Founding Fathers is interesting, for me the real fascinating aspects of the book were the parts about the common soldiers, bystanders and even camp followers.
