What the Presidents Did on the Fourth of July

With the arrival of warm weather across the United States, it must mean that one of America's most endearing holidays is close at hand: the 4th of July. Researched and developed by James Heintze, this site offers a perspective on the holiday by detailing what each president, from George Washington to George W. Bush, have done on this particular holiday. Visitors may be interested to learn that in 1926 Calvin Coolidge was in Rapid City, South Dakota (where he was garbed in western attire), and that in 1952 Harry S. Truman spent part of the day watching the Washington Senators play baseball in old Griffith Stadium.
