With an eye for neglected places and offbeat people reminiscent of Tony Horwitz and Sarah Vowell, Carlson shows that the ways we memorialize our presidents reveal as much about us as about the men themselves.

Dead ends and in depth history.
Honestly this story was a bit of a disappointment. We follow the narrator along what I guess was a road trip with his family checking out tourists spots where dead presidents have tombs and monuments.
This unfortunately makes for a disjointed confusing history lesson, going back and forth in time. While informative and interesting, I had a hard time following, as we leaped from one president to the next, out of chronological order, with no clear time line. The only interesting stories were those about each president while what we really needed was some way to tie the whole book together.
