Author of The Worst. President. Ever.
Sunday, February 19, 2017, 2pm.
The Friends of the Indian King Tavern invite you to meet Robert Strauss, author of The Worst. President. Ever.
James Buchanan had a great resume: State Representative, US Congressman, Ambassador to Britain, Ambassador to Russia and Secretary of State. But, claims Robert Strauss, as President, he was leading the country towards its demise.
He will explore Buchanan’s meddling in the Dredd Scott decision, fueling the panic of 1857, and helping foment the John Brown uprising. He discusses with insight and humor his own obsession with presidents, and ultimately, the entire notion of ranking our presidents.
Mr. Strauss will be available to sign his book after the lecture.
