Unsung Heroes

After their elections, the presidents from Ohio never again fared so well in the polls. Who were they and why are these stalwart heart-of-the-country fellows, five of them forged in the violent crucible of the Civil War, so easily forgotten? Unsung Heroes is a contemporary examination of their lives, their presidencies, and the more than half century in America when they helped prepare the definition for a powerful emerging industrial nation. 322 pages.
