Philadelphia Presidential Conventions is a panoramic excursion through the half-hidden history of Presidential nominating conventions held in Philadelphia, America's original convention city, by the nation's leading political parties over the past century-and-a-half.
In the summer of 2000, the Thirty-Seventh Republican National Convention meets in the "City of Brotherly Love" in hopes of naming the first President of the Twenty-First Century. Philadelphia Presidential Conventions helps put the 2000 convention into a broader historical context of issues, traditions, debates, and candidates. Sautter's story captures the personalities, the oratory, the intrigue, the drama, the festive setting of these political conventions and the national campaigns and elections that followed them in 1848, 1856, 1872, 1900, 1936, 1940, and in the triple convention year of 1948.
