Overview

An informative and visual guide to America's highest office, this DK Eyewitness book explores the history of the White House and the presidents who have served in it, and features a spread about the nation's 45th president, Donald Trump.

Follow the early lives and political careers of the US presidents and see how they came into office, with full-color photographs of campaign memorabilia, family portraits, handwritten letters, mementos, and more. Discover how Abraham Lincoln saved the Union, why teddy bears are named after Theodore Roosevelt, and how Thomas Jefferson doubled the size of the nation with the Louisiana Purchase.

Flip to the reference section in DK Eyewitness Books: Presidents to learn even more fun facts. Read iconic speeches, including Ronald Reagan's Evil Empire speech, John F. Kennedy's inaugural address, Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, and Washington's farewell address. Learn about presidential libraries and homes, national parks, Mount Rushmore, and Washington, DC.

Now revised and updated and available for the first time in paperback, DK Eyewitness Books: Presidents looks at key players, political events, and historic moments throughout each president's term. Learn how each commander in chief led the United States through war, political turmoil, and times of peace with full-page spreads and easy-to-understand information about America's history.

Each revised Eyewitness book retains the stunning artwork and photography from the groundbreaking original series, but the text has been reduced and reworked to speak more clearly to younger readers. Still on every colorful page: vibrant annotated photographs and the integrated text-and-pictures approach that makes Eyewitness a perennial favorite of parents, teachers, and school-age kids.
