From George Washington to Barack Obama, Presidents of the United States covers the 43 men who have held the nation’s highest office. This attractive book provides information about each U. S. president and audio clips of one or more defining quotation from each president.

Presidents of the United States has a built-in control panel, with a numeric keypad and volume control. Each presidential quotation in the book has a numeric code. To hear the quotation, enter the code. Authentic presidential recordings were used, if available; in other cases, a voice actor recited the presidential quotation. The book presents more than 50 audio clips and 25 minutes total audio time.

From inaugural addresses to farewell speeches, State of the Union addresses to declarations of war, the words of U. S. presidents have shaped both national and international policy, character, and history.

  • George Washington’s Farewell Address
  • Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address
  • Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s 1941 address to Congress requesting a Declaration of War
