#ColdWar #1968 #WhiteHouse ex-President Eisenhower with President LBJ. Ike was a ferocious hawk on the Vietnam War and urged escalation to the Johnson admin. - "This respecting of boundary lines on the map, I think you can overdo it,” he said. The U.S. should pursue the Communists into Laos, Cambodia, and even North Vietnam, and ignore the “‘kooks’ and ‘hippies’ and all the rest that are talking about surrendering.  Ike kept up the heat from his farm at Gettysburg to deny the communists SE Asia. #ike #eisenhower #vietnamwar #lbj #anticommunism *"If any Republican or Democrat suggests that we pull out of Vietnam and turn our backs on the more than thirteen thousand Americans who died in the cause of freedom there, they will have me to contend with." #presidentialhistory #usmilitary #gettysburg #thesixties

15 years ago today on October 11, 2002... The 39th President of The United States James Earl Carter excepts The Nobel Peace Prize for “for his decades of untiring effort to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development.” I'm forever grateful for his service and He is in my continued prayers every single day... It was announced just yesterday that he has offered to meet with Kim Jong Un to broker peace to avoid nuclear war... #onthisdayinamericanhistory #otd #onthisdayinpresidentialhistory #presidentialhistory #history #historygirl #historygeek #historychick #historynerd #anelephantnvr4gets #the39thpresident #jamesearlcarter

Located on the third highest point in DC, the Cottage is where President Lincoln lived for a quarter of his presidency and made some of his most critical decisions during the Civil War, most notably the development of the Emancipation Proclamation (room pictured above), declaring slaves in the states of rebellion forever free. The desk is a replica; the actual desk was moved from the Cottage to the White House in 1930. It sits in the Lincoln Bedroom on the second floor 😁

Things I know about James Madison: 1. He was short 2. His land is full of spiders #presidentialhistory #skippedthetour
Second in the series: Who's on the Parking Fee Today?
James Madison - fourth President of the United States from 1809 to 1817. Founding Father, Virginia Dynasty member, and co founder of the (m-fing) Southern Democratic Republican party along with TJeff; founded to counter A.Ham's Federalists. Wrote the first drafts of the US Constitution, co-wrote the Federalist Papers which supported it, and sponsored the Bill of Rights. Surprisingly, not a huge fan of Religion and Government mixing. Go fig.

Salient quotes:
If men were angels, no government would be necessary.

Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise, every expanded prospect.

In no instance have... the churches been guardians of the liberties of the people.

On #DaySeven our final day of #GuysRoadTrip2NOLA on the way home we stopped by #Polk11 home and museum. This brought the trip full circle since we started the trip at his grave site. The museum has the largest amount of #Polk11 artifacts in the country including several items and furnishings that were actually in the #WhiteHouse. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and taught me a lot about #sarahchildresspolk ! Interesting lady. #Polk11 is ranked as one of our top 10 presidents but never gets the credit he deserves. Being the only #chiefexecutive to actually fulfill ALL his campaign promises he should be a legend! Plus, and most importantly, he got us the final third of our country through negotiation and war. Next time your In Nashville, go 50 miles further south and check this historical treasure out! #alwayslearning #presidentialhistory #presidentialhistorian #presidentialgeek

First presidential speech on TV occurred on October 5, 1947. President Harry Truman (1884-1972) makes the first-ever televised presidential address from the White House, asking Americans to cut back on their use of grain in order to help starving Europeans. #todayinhistory #tvhistory #presidentialhistory #onthisday #bwtv #harrytruman #abctv #nbctv #cbstv #1947  #iamgettingold
A beautiful day for the annual birthday tribute to President Chester A. Arthur at Albany Rural Cemetery.  He’s buried beside his wife, Ellen;  her grave is marked by a pretty white marble sarcophagus by Albany marble cutter William Manson.  It’s just behind the larger monument featuring an Angel of Sorrow by Ephraim  Keyser.  #albanyruralcemetery #presidentchesteralanarthur #presidentialhistory #wreathlaying #cemetery #ephraimkeyser

First in a possible series: Who's on the Parking Fee Today?

James Monroe. Fifth POTUS. 1817-1825 4th of the First five POTUSes from the Virginia Dynasty and a (southernmf) Democratic Republican (#hamilfans will get that). QOTD: "National honor is the national property of the highest value." ...and especially salient in today's climate "A little flattery will support a man through great fatigue." #dollarcoins #presidentialhistory #jamesmonroe #hamilton #potus

After the museum @7thpresident on #DayTwo of the #GuysRoadTrip2NOLA we visited both versions of #thehermitage . #Jackson7 lived most of his married life with Rachel in the cabin at the bottom left. He had the mansion built before she passed but added onto it substantially after she died. I took the President’s tour of the grounds which allowed me to carry a device that told me interesting facts around the grounds. This is a must if you plan on going here. Well worth the extra money. We also payed our respects to the president who is buried along with his wife and several family members in his wife’s garden. And finally the Scotts and I got our first opportunity to pick cotton. Cool to do something that I’ve taught and studied for so long. #alwayslearning #presidentialhistory #presidentialhistorian

#DayTwo of #GuysRoadTrip2NOLA was spent @7thpresident #thehermitage, home of #Jackson7 Starts with a flick about the General’s life and times. Then we walked through the museum which included the #BornfortheStorm exhibit, which had artifacts of Jackson and his wife, Rachel, such as their wedding attire, many swords and weapons, & Jackson’s carriage. The Scotts and I were all smiles! #alwayslearning #presidentialhistory #presidentialhistorian
#DayOne of #GuysRoadTrip2NOLA w/ the Scotts (Bro-in-law & Childhood Buddy)! Stopped in #Nashville at state capital to pay our respects to President #Polk11 ! Along with Polk's grave, is a beautiful garden area including a couple of fountains with statues of  #Jackson7 (same as the ones in #NOLA & DC) and #AndrewJohnson17 & a replica of #LibertyBell . So all three of Tennessee's native sons who became president are represented. There was also a statue of #WWI hero #SgtAlvinYork. If you are into history, it is definitely worth stopping here! #presidentialhistory #presidentialhistorian #alwayslearning

A piece of history for all of you out there. That's my grandmother with First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy during the latter's visit to India, dated March17th,1962, this photo was taken by First Lady's Press Secretary Pamela Turnure and was presented by the United States Information Service. Grandma and Mrs. Kennedy stayed in touch until 1994 and in the course shared over 200 letters. Most of them have been preserved by the family trust and will be presented to the JFK Presidential Library and Museum early next year as my family believes it belongs to the people now. #grandmother #jacquelinekennedy #JFK #presidentkennedy #firstladyoftheunitedstates #jfk #indiavisit #jfkpresidentiallibrary #jfklibrary #jfklibraryandmuseum #usa #smithsonian #presidentialhistory #mrskennedy #legacy

Remembering Hugh Hefner today-- In the November 1976 issue of Playboy Magazine, presidential candidate Jimmy Carter gave a candid interview that many Americans deemed controversial. Although he delivered the infamous line about having lust in his heart, more importantly, he said, “I will never knowingly lie to the American people.” #hughhefner #RIP #presidentiallibraries #nationalarchives #presidentialhistory #carterlibrary @usnatarchives

DADH professor Erin Kuykendall and students gather outside the rear entrance to President James Monroe's guest house at Highland, outside Charlottesville, Virginia. Dendrochronology,  archaeology and a reexamination of the documentary record have definitively concluded this building - long interpreted as a wing to Monroe's original home from 1799 - was actually built in 1818 by two enslaved carpenters, Peter Mallory and George, as separate guest quarters for visiting dignitaries during Monroe's Presidency #historichomes #virginiahistory #history #architecturalhistory #design #preservation #highland #presidentialhistory #interiors

One missed President by 6 Inches and the second went off in the distance, as a Retired Marine grabbed her arm, saving The President's Life... She was Arrested By The Secret Service and subsequently sentenced to The Rest of Her Life In Prison but was granted parole in 2007 and released after serving 32 years after it was determined she was only a threat to Ford, who was now deceased... #onthisdayinamericanhistory #otd #onthisdayinpresidentialhistory #presidentialhistory #history #historygirl #historygeek #historychick #historynerd #anelephantnvr4gets

It was such a pleasure to hang out at the Dolvin House for the afternoon last Saturday while working @roswellhistoricalsociety Roswell Tour of Homes.  I was Emily Dolvin's, President Jimmy Carter's aunt, guest - and though she passed away in 2006, she was still there.  Swipe ⬅️ to see my favorite picture of her.

Rachel & Ryan Goodman have been incredible stewards of the Dolvin House and it's really a feel good story of embracing the history of a space while using it for modern day business. The Platt Law Firm hosts an all female attorney roster within the home now. I think Emily would be pleased.

We thought we'd start out the week with an inspirational quote by our president of the week! 🇺🇸William McKinley is not a well-known president but he was super popular in his day. When he was assassinated, the nation mourned him just as strongly as it had when JFK died. 🇺🇸 And, luckily, as our third assassinated president in less than 50 years, Congress finally got a clue and officially tasked the Secret Service with presidential protection. 🇺🇸 To read more on this good man, see the link in our profile. And seriously, this quote--❤️! In what ways do you teach your children to be good examples? #theamericanmoms #uspresidents101 #williammckinley
We thought we'd start out the week with an inspirational quote by our president of the week! 🇺🇸William McKinley is not a well-known president but he was super popular in his day. When he was assassinated, the nation mourned him just as strongly as it had when JFK died. 🇺🇸 And, luckily, as our third assassinated president in less than 50 years, Congress finally got a clue and officially tasked the Secret Service with presidential protection. 🇺🇸 To read more on this good man, see the link in our profile.

Finally made it to James K Polk's childhood home down in Columbia. I can't recommend a visit there enough. They've done a great job of collecting Polk's original possessions and restoring the home. Admission is only $10 which gets you get a tour of the house, and you can explore the museum, gardens, and gift shop. Get down to Columbia! #nashvillehistory #jameskpolk #presidentialhistory

We thought we'd try something new today and jump on the "Friday Favorites" bandwagon! 🇺🇸 One thing we've loved since starting our blog is the exposure to so many different resources we never even knew existed before! One of those is the Washington Post's Presidential podcast.🇺🇸 If you thought history was boring, give these podcasts a chance and you'll be singing a different tune. The host always asks a historian the question "If you were to set me up on a blind date with this man, what would you tell me about him?" The answers are sometimes funny but always insightful and fascinating glimpses into their personalities. 🇺🇸 We've had a lot of readers thank us for including it in our "president of the week" posts (another one is coming soon) because they love it so much--so if you weren't aware of it before, pick a president you're interested in, sit back, relax and enjoy history coming to life! 🇺🇸 We are kind of late to the game on the podcast scene. What other podcasts do you love?? #theamericanmoms #presidential #washingtonpost #fridayfavorites #theamericanmomsfavs #theamericanmomsfridayfavorites

Although, I'm sure they tried gallantly to save The 25th President, 8 days after being shot by an Assassin, 116 years ago today on September 14, 1901... President William McKinley, shot in the abdomen, dies of massive infection... he is the third US President to be Assassinated... May he always Rest In Peace. #onthisdayinamericanhistory #otd #onthisdayinpresidentialhistory #presidentialhistory #history #historygirl #historygeek #historychick #historynerd #anelephantnvr4gets  #presidentialassassination #rememberingpresidentmckinley #our25thpresident #williammckinley #thankyouforyourservice #thepresidentisdead

Hot dog history: King George VI was the first reigning British monarch to visit the United States. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt hosted a picnic and served Wolf Boy* hot dogs and beer to ol' George and his wife. The New York Times ran this headline the next day. *Wolf Boy didn't actually exist in 1939, so this is not true. But if we were around back then, you can bet your bald eagle ass that FDR would have chosen bona fide, pasture-raised, naturally cured, junk-free Wolf Boys for his esteemed guests. He probably would've manned the grill himself to make sure they were cooked just right. #history #america #fdr #presidentialhistory #newyorktimes #picnic #hotdogs #bonafide #pastureraised #junkfree #naturallycured #lemmegetawolfboy

Friday September 5, 1975... Sacramento California... Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme, best known for being Charles Manson's "Right Hand", walks up to The 38th President of The United States wearing a bright red robe... She pointed a M1911 Pistol at point blank range and pulled the trigger... Nothing... As the Secret Service was wrestling this would be Assassin to the ground she was heard shouting over and over again "It didn't go off!" "I can't believe it didn't go off"... She was sentenced to Life in Prison for her crime, and even after an escape attempt, she was released from Prison 34 years after her crime... She lives anonymously somewhere in the State of New York and last I read she is still loyal to Manson... 17 days later another woman would try and fail to kill President Ford... #onthisdayinamericanhistory #otd #onthisdayinpresidentialhistory #presidentialhistory #history #historygirl #historygeek #historychick #historynerd #anelephantnvr4gets

Labor Day became a national holiday under President Grover Cleveland in 1894. A president known for being tough on corruption, Cleveland was also a fan of boxing, famously shaking hands with prizefighter John L. Sullivan (pictured) during a visit to the White House in 1887.

This chair was made locally for President Franklin D. Roosevelt to use during his visit to Green Bay in 1934.  The city hosted a series of events that year to commemorate the 300 year anniversary of Jean Nicolet landing at Red Banks which included a parade and visit from the President.  While here, President Roosevelt gave a speech at Bay Beach promoting the New Deal.
