More About This Book

Overview

In these pages Silent Cal Coolidge focuses his famed terse eloquence on the nation's founders, not merely on George Washington's indispensable figure but also on the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, Alexander Hamilton, Washington's fellow Virginia patriots, the Battles of Bunker Hill, Princeton, and Trenton, Ethan Allen's Green Mountain Boys, Boston's Old North Church, Methodist Episcopal Bishop Francis Asbury, and the pivotal role Jewish Americans played in winning of our freedoms. No modern president has spoken so much-or so well-of America's providential genesis.

Coolidge turns mere history into a history lesson.

David Pietrusza, editor of "Silent Cal's Almanack: The Homespun Wit and Wisdom of Vermont's Calvin Coolidge", is also the award-winning author of "1920: The Year of the Six Presidents", "1960: LBJ vs JFK vs Nixon," "1948: Harry Truman's Improbable Victory and the Year that Transformed America", and "Rothstein: The Life, Times, and Murder of the Criminal Genius who Fixed the 1919 World Series." Pietrusza has served on both the national advisory board and the board of directors of the Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation.

ALSO BY DAVID PIETRUSZA:
"SILENT CAL'S ALMANACK"

"Calvin Coolidge was one of the greatest presidents of the 20th century and is certainly the most underrated. This book, compiled by one of my favorite historians, will give readers a full appreciation of why Silent Cal's wisdom shines like a beacon through the fog of historical amnesia."
-Jonah Goldberg, author of "Liberal Fascism"

"David Pietrusza reminds us that decades before the age of the sound bite, Calvin Coolidge mastered the art. But unlike most politicians today, he used few words to say a wisdom-packed mouthful."
-David Stokes, author of "Apparent Danger-The Pastor of America's First Megachurch and the Texas Murder Trial of the Decade of the 1920s"
