About this title


More than 100 true stories drawn from the life and times of America's most famous and legendary home. A collection of more than 100 true stories sheds a new light on America s fascinating leaders and the time they spent at the United State s most famous residence. More than just a book about presidents and the White House, author C. Brian Kelly s truly unique and personal approach is sure to capture the attention of history enthusiasts and presidential buffs alike.


Best Little Stories from the White House is a fascinating collection of more than 100 vignettes drawn from the life and times of America's most famous and legendary home. Here are stories about the house itself and how it has evolved over the years, as well as stories about its famous occupants. Did you know, for instance: that Winston Churchill once suffered a minor heart episode while struggling with a stuck window in the White House? that at the height of the Cold War, Dwight Eisenhower's new 707 jet was outfitted with spy cameras for a flight to Moscow - until events forced the plane to turn for home? that at Boris Yeltsin's first state dinner at the White House - the first state dinner for a non-Communist Russian leader since the nineteenth century - George and Barbara Bush presented him with an automatic tennis-ball server? Also included are stories of several first ladies and their experiences on Pennsylvania Avenue, including Dolley Madison, Miss Harriet "Hal" Lane (niece of James Buchanan), Mary Lincoln, Jacqueline Kennedy, Barbara Bush, and Hillary Rodham Clinton.
