Description

Behind the White House's impressive facade lies the long history of the men who have lived and governed within it's walls. From births to deaths, weddings to funerals, the White House has seen it all. In Best Little Stories from the White House, author C. Brian Kelly takes us on a tour of the White House's fascinating history, giving us a glimpse of the most memorable presidential moments:

Theodore Roosevelt 's children once snuck their pony upstairs in the White House elevator to cheer up their sick brother.

Winston Churchill once suffered a minor heart episode while struggling with a stuck window in the White House.

John Quincy Adams was known to skinny-dip in the Potomac.

Woodrow Wilson liked to chase up and down the White House corridors playing "rooster fighting" with his daughter Nellie.
