Description

Paul Boller's widely admired and bestselling anecdotal histories have uncovered new aspects and revealed hidden dimensions in the lives of presidents and those who surround them. Illuminating the days and weeks from the moment our commander in chief is elected to the moment he takes office, Presidential Inaugurations provides a never-before-seen look at the events leading up to "the big day." Boller takes us along with Lincoln on his mysterious first entrance into Washington and renders the poignancy of FDR's final inauguration. We learn of the surprising appearance of Tallulah Bankhead at Truman's inauguration and relive the charming report by Jacqueline Bouvier on Eisenhower's 1953 inaugural.
Highlighting memorable moments from 1789 to 2001, Presidential Inaugurations presents the pride, passions, and prejudices of our great nation as we greet a new leader.
