Description
Homes and Libraries of the Presidents identifies, describes, and provides sources of additional information to almost one hundred homes, libraries, and museums that commemorate one or more of the presidents of the United States — from George Washington to George W. Bush. Each president's life and home is put into personal and historical context. The book has three sections.Section one provides an overview of the historical significance of presidential homes and museums, discusses restoration and preservation efforts, and traces the federal government’s role, through the National Park Service and the National Archives, in administering and maintaining these sites.Section two—the most extensive part of the book—presents short anecdotal biographies of each president, followed by a description of the relevant home, museum, or library sites. Basic locational and access information is also provided for each site.Section three identifies sources of additional information related to the theme of the book, and provides lists of presidential birthplaces, burial sites, and associations related to presidential history.
