  • John Tyler: A Short Biography: Tenth President of the United States (30 Minute Book Series)

    John Tyler holds the distinction of being the first president to take office due to the death of a sitting president.

Immediately he rushed to Washington, D.C., to be embroiled in a Constitutional crisis over the secession of power.The Whig Political Party had chosen Tyler as Harrison’s running mate in the election of 1840, primarily because he was from the very populous state of Virginia and it was hoped he could bring in the Southern vote.

  • Accidental Presidents: Eight Men Who Changed America

    NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The strength and prestige of the American presidency has waxed and waned since George Washington. Accidental Presidents looks at eight men who came to the office without being elected to it. It demonstrates how the character of the man in that powerful seat affects the nation and world.Eight men have succeeded to the presidency when the incumbent died in office. In one way or another they vastly changed our history. Only Theodore Roosevelt would have been elected in his own right. Only TR, Truman, Coolidge, and LBJ were re-elected. John Tyler succeeded William Henry Harrison who died 30 days into his term. He was ki...

  • Ulysses S. Grant: The American Presidents Series: The 18th President, 1869-1877

    The underappreciated presidency of the military man who won the Civil War and then had to win the peace as wellAs a general, Ulysses S. Grant is routinely described in glowing terms-the man who turned the tide of the Civil War, who accepted Lee's surrender at Appomattox, and who had the stomach to see the war through to final victory. But his presidency is another matter-the most common word used to characterize it is "scandal." Grant is routinely portrayed as a man out of his depth, whose trusting nature and hands-off management style opened the federal coffers to unprecedented plunder. But that caricature does not do justice to the realitie...

  • Andrew Jackson: A Captivating Guide to the Man Who Served as the Seventh President of the United States

    Explore the Captivating Life of Andrew JacksonWhen Jackson left the White House after two presidential terms, he had achieved a rare feat: he left office with even more popularity than when he first entered it. His reputation as a strong president and a “champion of working-class democracy” has nevertheless been viewed through a more nuanced lens in recent years. In 2016, President Barack Obama decided to replace Andrew Jackson’s visage on the front of the $20 bill with a portrait of abolitionist Harriet Tubman. Meanwhile, current President Donald Trump has repeatedly drawn parallels between himself and Jackson via his infamous Twitter ...

  • Martin Van Buren: A Captivating Guide to the Man Who Served as the Eighth President of the United States

    Explore the Captivating Life of Martin Van BurenHistory chiefly remembers Martin Van Buren as the eighth president of the United States (1837– 1841).

He was also the first New Yorker to ascend to the Oval Office in the White House, at a time when Manhattan was becoming the u...

  • Heart on Fire: Susan B. Anthony Votes for President

    On November 5, 1872, Susan B. Anthony made history--and broke the law--when she voted in the US presidential election, a privilege that had been reserved for men. She was arrested, tried, and found guilty: “The greatest outrage History every witnessed,” she wrote in her journal. It wasn't until 1920 that women were granted the right to vote, but the civil rights victory would not have been possible without Susan B. Anthony's leadership and passion to stand up for what was right.

    In a brilliant collaboration between writer and subject, Witold Rybczynski, the bestselling author of Now I Sit Me Down, illuminates Frederick Law Olmsted's role as a major cultural figure at the epicenter of nineteenth-century American history.We know Olmsted through the physical legacy of his stunning landscapes—among them, New York's Central Park, California's Stanford University campus, and Boston's Back Bay Fens.
