How have American presidents contended with the most profound conflicts of their day? The Founding Fathers had to manage the aftermath of the Revolutionary War; Abraham Lincoln’s leadership during the Civil War was one of the era’s only bright spots; and Theodore Roosevelt brought the country into the 20th century with boundless energy and optimism following the Spanish-American War. This 8-book set gathers the writings of these presidents (and more) in beautifully bound, heirloom-quality volumes from Library of America. Our custom jacket design features an antique architectural rendering of the White House from the early 19th century.
