Abstract:

The Ultimate Guide to the Presidents offers a fresh perspective on how the Oval Office has evolved over the past 200 years through stories about the 43 men who have served as commander-in-chief and the ebbs and flows of presidential power and responsibilities. America by the mid-1800s was triple its original size thanks to bold and controversial decisions by Presidents such as Jefferson, Jackson, and Polk. But with new territory came old confrontations. Slavery - the question that had been avoided since the country's birth - now had to be answered. Some leaders pinned their hopes on compromise, until one used the Presidency to defend freedom and the Union - at any cost.
