"I Present America's Presidents"

Journal by 1bobbylee

I have observed recently an interest by some of our members in American history. Thank you. By being a member of Family Tree Circles, I to have learned some history about other countries. Primarily, Australia, New Zealand and England. There are others. Why shouldn't we from time to time, present a journal to introduce other members to our own individual countries?

Pick a subject that someone may not have thought about or know. It can be informative, happy, sad, or tragic. Most people know their own countries better than someone else's.

I was thinking about my country's Presidents. What was in their heart when they took the Oath of Office? By really listening and studying the words of a President's Inaugural Address has allowed me some insight as to how a U.S. President has governed or will govern.

My favorite President along with his Inaugural address was President Harry S Truman.

Read all the U.S. President's inaugural addresses..



"After reading President Truman's Inaugural Address, I want to jump up and shout, "God Bless America!" and to bless "any" country that seeks "Freedom" and "Democracy.

This is a great idea. My paternal line ties in with the Boone and Lincoln families - I discovered the connection totally by accident. No one in the family had ever hinted at a connection. Anyway - that connection sparked some interest in my younger child to study a bit on both Lincoln and Daniel Boone. The history lesson one can get from studying one's family - where a family line came from and why is just fascinating. That's what I really love about genealogy.

I missed this back in August when you posted this Bob. Good stuff. (I just edited your post to turn the URL into an actual link. You can edit this yourself to see how I did that for future reference)
