How have American presidents contended with the most profound conflicts of their day? The Founding Fathers had to manage the aftermath of the Revolutionary War; Abraham Lincoln’s leadership during the Civil War was one of the era’s only bright spots, and Theodore Roosevelt brought the country into the 20th century with boundless energy and optimism following the Spanish-American War. This 8-book set gathers the writings of these presidents (and more) in beautifully bound, heirloom-quality volumes from Library of America. Our custom jacket design features an antique architectural rendering of the White House from the early 19th century.
