  • This is one of the few books actually written about this long forgotten President While Sievers writing is definitely academic in style than would be preferred for the casual reader, this is not a difficult nor a particularly long read 317 pages Sievers, wherever possible, allows Harrison to talk for himself, and quotes numerously and at length from Harrison s voluminous correspondence particularly with his wife, Carrie, and his father, John Scott Harrison Harrison seemed to be writing all the [...]

  • Father Harry Sievers three volume biography of Benjamin Harrison is sometimes stuck too deeply in the historical traditions of the 1950 s but still the best resource in getting to know this nearly forgotten, enigmatic and quite pious 23rd President from Indiana.
