Harry S Truman NHS Hiking Stick Medallion
Harry Truman loved to walk and his cane is as much a symbol of him as Lincoln's top hat. Always in the vanguard of fashion, Truman used a cane long before he really needed one. Clipping along at 120 paces a minute, cane swinging, the president was a familiar sight in both Independence and Washington.Although he had no set route, his walks averaged 1 1/2 miles and lasted 1/2 hour. Truman took his health seriously. He wrote, ''If you are going to take a walk for your physical benefit, it is necessary that you walk as if you are going someplace. You swing your arms and take deep breathes as you walk.''Product DetailsExperience Truman's town and follow in his footsteps on a neighborhood walking tourHST NHS collectible hiking stick medallion measures 1 3/4''W x 1 3/4''H

Albert Gallatin was born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1761. At the age of 19, he and a friend snuck out of school and made the trip to America, the ""freest country in the universe."" They arrived in Boston with nothing but $400 and some tea to sell, and it took Gallatin two years to finally find a job. Eventually he bought some land in Pennsylvania, and from there he became a success. He was a politician, financer, scholar, farmer, and entrepreneur. He served 13 years as the Secretary of the Treasury for both Presidents Thomas Jefferson and James Madison - the longest term ever.

Affection and Trust: The Personal Correspondence of Harry S. Truman and Dean Acheson, 1953-1971

In this riveting collection, published for the first time, we follow Harry S. Truman and Dean Acheson, two giants of the post-World War II period, as they move from an official relationship to one of candor, humor, and personal expression. Together they were primarily responsible for the Marshall Plan and NATO, among other world-shaping initiatives. And in these letters, spanning the years from when both were newly out of office until Acheson's death at the age of seventy-eight, we find them sharing the often surprising and always illuminating opinions, ideas, and feelings that the strictures of their offices had previously kept them from revealing. Adapting easily to their private lives, they nonetheless felt a powerful need to keep in touch as they viewed with dismay what they considered to be the Eisenhower administration's fumbling of foreign affairs, the impact of Joseph McCarthy, John Foster Dulles's foreign policy, and the threat of massive nuclear retaliation. Adlai Stevenson's poor campaign of 1956, Eisenhower's second-term mishaps, family events, speaking engagements, and Truman's difficulties writing his memoirs are all fodder for their conversations. In 1960 their skeptical stance toward John F. Kennedy (and his father's influence) turned them toward Lyndon Johnson. After Kennedy won they discussed Acheson's reluctant involvement in the Cuban missile crisis, his missions to de Gaulle and Prime Minister Macmillan, and the Allied position in Berlin. Unbuttoned, careless of language, unburdened by political ambition or vanity, Truman and Acheson show their own characters and loyalty to each other on every page. Truman, a Missouri farmer with the unpolished but sharp intellect of the largely self-educated man, clearly understands that in Acheson he has a friend with a rare gift for providing unhesitant and truthful counsel. Acheson, well-educated, urbane, and well-off, understands which traits in Truman's complex character to love and admire and when to admo

The history of the El Yunque National Forest is extremely rich.

History books often focus on Abraham Lincoln's achievements during his years as the 16th US president, and rightly so; however, that can make you overlook the earlier times of his life that arguably made him the man who kept the United States together during the Civil War and did so much more. Those early times of Lincoln's life-specifically from ages seven to 21-are memorialized at the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial in Indiana, where visitors can learn about Lincoln's family, his boyhood, and life on a homestead during his time.For many years, hiking stick medallions have been used to commemorate one's treks to various locations. The boyhood home of one of the most famous US presidents certainly deserves a medallion placement on your staff. This item features an illustration of the park's visitor center, focusing on the Indiana Panel, one of five wall sculptures in the Memorial Building.Product DetailsDimensions: approx. 1 1/4'' W x 1 3/4'' HDesigned and finished in the USA
