Grover Cleveland

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tiffany Torbeck
As the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms in office, Grover Cleveland left an unusual legacy. He was never formally educated, but began practicing law in 1859 in Buffalo, which led to his career in politics. After running for mayor on the Democratic ticket, Cleveland defied the Society of Tammany Hall to become known as the "veto mayor." Cleveland would later become the "veto president" as well, as he strove to end corruption and wasteful spending. Cleveland's personal life was not all clean and proper, but as a bachelor upon his election, was the only president to have his wedding in the White House. The text is clearly written and will help students understand the decisions and values of this early president. Cleveland attempted to save the country from financial ruin by maintaining the gold standard, and he valued integrity in the face of a corrupt political system. Students have much to learn from Cleveland and school libraries should add this volume to their collections. Reviewer: Tiffany Torbeck
