Description

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." It's a short oath of office for a very big job: president of the United States. Forty–four people have taken up the responsibilities of the presidency as the nation has grown from the birth of the republic into a modern superpower. They've faithfully executed the duties of president, including signing treaties, addressing Congress, and appointing government officials. But their impact goes far beyond the bounds of their Constitutional job description. Each president has left a unique mark on the history of the United States and on the lives of the American people. Our Country's Presidents is packed with information about America's leaders, from why George Washington gave up his life as a Virginia planter to lead a nation to why John Tyler was nicknamed "His Accidency." Readers can romp with the Garfield kids in a White House pillow fight, mourn John F. Kennedy's assassination with the nation, and watch as their leaders struggle each day to do well at the hardest job on earth. Carefully researched text and historic images combine to make this volume the definitive family reference guide to the fascinating lives of the presidents of the United States. The book includes information on the 2016 election and our 45th commander in chief.
