An original 176-page collection of stories about facts and artifacts from more than 200 years on the Lehigh Valley campaign trail.
A lock of hair from Washington, a beer glass from Obama and countless headlines, ribbons, buttons, photos and mementos both odd and grand over the intervening span of time. Presidents-to-be, presidents in office, presidents past and would-be presidents have frequently made the Lehigh Valley a stop in their travels and left much behind. The President Was Here! chronicles the events and memorabilia that frame the presidency as seen by local residents, from John Adams' first stop in 1777 to the 2012 contest.
Special features inside:
Dozens of photos from area collectors, libraries and museums
News clippings and pages from The Morning Call archives
A bonus section of front pages with the biggest news events from the past 114 years
