Fellow Citizens: The Penguin Book of U.S. Presidential Inaugural Addresses (Penguin Classics)
Bargain Book Copy
Beginning with George Washington and ending with George W. Bush, this stirring and often surprising collection of U.S. presidential inaugural addresses offers a great overview of the history of America - from its formation as a young republic to the modern war on terrorism. With insightful commentary that provides the historical context for each speech, readers will learn how Washington came to ad-lib "So help me, Go" at the end of his oath of office, why Thomas Jefferson's first inaugural address is considered one of the finest ever give, what inspired FDR's "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself," and the story behind JFK's "Ask not what your country can do for you . . ."
