Overview

Author Gary Ferris does more than take readers to where John F. Kennedy was shot and where Ulysses S. Grant was buried. Included here—for the first time between two covers—are the places where all 42 presidents were born, lived, went to school, worshipped, were married, were inaugurated, died, were buried, and are honored.

You'll visit the site of Harry S. Truman's haberdashery, the former cafe where Lyndon Baines Johnson developed his fondness for chili, and Jimmy Carter's famous Smiling Peanut Statue. You'll discover the California hotel where the Nixons married and the Reagans honeymooned. And the Vermont home where Calvin Coolidge was inaugurated by his own father at 2:47 a.m. one day. And the Ohio dormitory where curious students broke down the wall of Rutherford B. Hayes's former room. And the churchyard where George Washington first told friends he would fight for independence.

The book's geographic index will help families locate presidential sites wherever they travel, and its listings of schedules and fees will aid them in planning visits that are sure to be both entertaining and educational.
