The hidden history of the White House : power struggles, scandals, and defining moments / Corey Mead ; foreword by Kate Andersen Brower.

Mead, Corey, (author.). Brower, Kate Andersen, (writer of foreword.).

Summary:
For more than two centuries, the White House in Washington, DC, has been the stage for some of the most dramatic scenes in American history. In the signature style of the American History Tellers podcast, this book places readers in the point of view of the historical figures--power brokers and everyday Americans alike--who lived through such pivotal events as Andrew Jackson's disastrous 1829 inauguration, when a populist mob overran and trashed the White House; Woodrow Wilson's stroke, which led to his wife Edith serving as a shadow president during the final months of his administration; Abraham Lincoln's clandestine journey to Washington to dodge an assassination plot on the eve of the Civil War; Winston Churchill's wartime sojourn at the White House, during which he and FDR developed plans to defeat Germany; and Barack Obama's decision to green-light the daring Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
