New in History: Dead Presidents

Posted January 30, 2016 | Posted in Adult Services

Dead Presidents

Public radio host and reporter, and former Villa Park Public Library staff member Brady Carlson, takes us on an epic trip to presidential gravesites, monuments, and memorials from sea to shining sea. In doing so he recounts the origins of stories of the Washington Monument and Mount Rushmore, explores presidential deaths, and explains the strange afterlives of the presidents including Herbert Hoover, Millard Fillmore, and Ulysses S. Grant. With the reverence of a pilgrim and the impudence of a comedian Carlson shows that the ways we memorialize our presidents reveal as much about us as it does about the men themselves.
