Join us as we read through all the U.S. presidents. We've reach the 18th president, Ulysses S. Grant. "Late in the administration of Andrew Johnson, Gen. Ulysses S. Grant quarreled with the President and aligned himself with the Radical Republicans. He was, as the symbol of Union victory during the Civil War, their logical candidate for President in 1868. When he was elected, the American people hoped for an end to turmoil. Grant provided neither vigor nor reform. Looking to Congress for direction, he seemed bewildered. One visitor to the White House noted "a puzzled pathos, as of a man with a problem before him of which he does not understand the terms." ~ whitehouse.govThere are no rules for this club. You may read any book or material you would like. We do offer several books at the front desk if you would like to choose one. All are welcome to our Presidents Book Club which meets every other month on the even months.
