Hail to the (New York) Chief

Feb 17, 2011 9:29 AM | 0 comments

Monday is Presidents Day. Officially known as Washington’s Birthday, some states, including New York, also recognize Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. While these former presidents are revered in February, we’d like to remind you of four other noteworthy commanders-in-chief: the Empire State’s own Martin Van Buren, Millard Fillmore, Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin Roosevelt.

To brush up on your knowledge of these and other US presidents, check out these selections from your Library:

The Complete Book of US Presidents by William A. DeGregorio
Martin Van Buren by Ted Widmer
Millard Fillmore by Jane Clark Casey
Theodore Roosevelt: A Twentieth-Century Life by Michael L. Cooper
FDR by Jean Edward Smith
