The Presidents’ Favorite Foods and Drinks: Volume I: From George Washington to Andrew Jackson (1789-1836) (The Presidents and Food)

by Suzy Evans

So What’s This Book About Anyway? That’s an EXCELLENT question! But, before we get into that, it’s time for a quick quiz. Here it is:

What do YOU have in common with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln and ALL of the American presidents?

What do you and your parents, teachers, brothers, sisters, neighbors, friends and all of your favorite librarians have in common with all of the American presidents?

What do you and dogs, cats, horses, cows, rats, lizards, chickens, hamsters, wombats, wildebeests and Screaming Hairy Armadillos have in common with all of the American presidents?

You’ve got three seconds. One thousand ONEâ?¦One thousand TWOâ?¦One thousand THREEâ?¦Time’s up! And the answer isâ?¦….FOOD!

That’s right! They might be the leader of the free world, and the most recognizable person in the universe, but each of the American presidents must eat (and drink) to survive, just like you and me.

Not all of the presidents, of course, shared similar food cravings and tastes. Some (Thomas Jefferson) were true gourmets who favored fancy French cuisine and couldn’t resist the ooey-gooey goodness of Macaroni and Cheese.

Others (Abraham Lincoln) were “food-as-fuel” kind of guys,, and, in times of national crisis, had to be reminded to eat.

Some presidents (William Howard Taft) consumed too much fattening food and grew obese. Others (Richard Nixon) had unusual food habits and tastes.

One president (Ronald Reagan) gobbled up handfuls of jelly beans to help him break a really bad habit â?? hint: it starts with “s” and rhymes with “joking.”

And others (Franklin Delano Roosevelt) viewed food and drink as tools of diplomacy and cultural exchange. And another president still yet let it be known what food he absolutely, positively, refused to eat.

So, as we’ll see, viewing the foods that our Chief Executives choose (and refuse) to eat can reveal a little bit about their unique personalities and character traits.

But, individually and collectively, these little books are about more than the eating habits of presidents past and present. They’re about the many fascinating, disgusting, bizarre, significant and surprising ways in which the presidents and food have shaped American history, from 1789 to present day. So, kick back, relax, and let’s get right to the action â?? and to the FOOD â?? in 1789!



The Russian Revolution of 1917 (A-Grade History Lectures Book 3)

by George Harris

“The Russian Revolution of 1917” is not a detailed history of that remarkable year, in which there were two revolutions, one in February and one in October. Rather it consists of two lectures, tackling the two key historical questions. 1. Why did Nicholas II fall from power in February? 2. How did Lenin and the Bolsheviks manage to take control in October, and keep it?
George Harris has studied, taught and examined this topic for over thirty years. In these lectures he condenses his ideas into a detailed, challenging and stimulating analysis.
His imaginary reader was an ambitious exam candidate, who wanted something more than a text book but something shorter than a monograph. The results turn out also to be an ideal introduction for the adult who gave up History at school but who now wants an intelligent introduction to the subject.



Family Genealogy Queries: ELMORE ELROD EMBRY & Others (Southern Genealogical Research)

by R. Stephen Smith

The family information in this book comes from a genealogy magazine published during the 1990s, now out of print. Contents of this brief volume include all queries from the magazine mentioning individuals or families surnamed ELMORE (with 9 queries total), ELROD (6 queries), EMBRY (EMERY, EMORY) (6 queries), ELSON (2 queries), ELY (2 queries), EMANUEL (2 queries), EMMICK (2 queries), ELMES (1 query), ELSWICK (1 query), EMMONS (1 query), or EMRICK (1 query).

The focus is on families in the southern United States.

Genealogy queries such as these have long been a means for family researchers to share information. Although these queries were written by persons seeking information, the wealth of detail in them could prove valuable to you if you’re working on the same names or lines.

Typically, queries include information on births, deaths, marriages, children of a given couple, family migrations, etc. Some trace several generations of one family. Some even include colorful family stories passed down through the years!

Note: If you aren’t sure if the information in this book will be useful to your particular family research, why not borrow and read it for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription?

Other surnames occurring incidentally in the queries reproduced in this volume include AIKEN, ANDRESS, ARMSTRONG, ARNOLD, BAIZE, BAKER, BANKSTON, BARNARD, BARNES, BAYS, BEATTY, BELL, BIRDSONG, BISHOP, BLACK, BLACKWOOD, BLAIN, BLAKE, BLANKS, BOARD, BOHANNON, BOLTON, BONA, BOON, BOWDEN, BOWEN, BOWLES, BOYD, BRADLEY, BREEDING, BROOKS, BURDETTE, BURFORD, CADE, CALAWAY, CANNIDA, CARROLL, CARVER, CHAMBERS, CHENEY, CHISM, CLARK, CLARY, CLEMENTS, CLONINGER, COLVIN, CONWAY, COONEY, COOPER, COSBY, COUSAR, COX, CRABTREE, CRISWELL, CRITCHFIELD, CROW, CUMMINS, CURTIS, CUTHBERTSON, DANIEL, DAUGHERTY, DAVIES, DAVIS, DEASON, DEATON, DERLING, DRAKE, DUESING, DUNN, EARLY, EDMONDS, EGERTON, ELKINS, ESTES, EVANS, FAIRCLOTH, FAITH, FARMER, FINN, FISHER, FLAHERTY, FOLSOM, FOX, FRIDAY, GABBERT, GAINES, GARNER, GARY, GILMORE, GIST, GREEN, GREENWELL, GRIMES, GROSS, GRYMES, GUESS, HALEY, HALL, HAMILTON, HAMMOND, HANSFORD, HANWAY, HARGRAVE, HARGROVE, HARRIS, HAWKINS, HAYS, HEADY, HEATLEY, HEMBREE, HENRY, HERREN, HERRING, HICKMAN, HIGDON, HILLING, HOLLIDAY, HOLLIS, HOOKER, HOPEWELL, HOPKINS, HOPPER, HORGER, HOULDER, HOWARD, HUDDLE, HUFF, HUFFMAN, HUIT, HURGER, HYDEN, IRBY, JARBOE, JEFFORD, JEFFORDS, JEWELL, JOHNSON, JONES, JUSTICE, KEARNEY, KEIGHTLY, KEITH, KELLEY, KELLY, KENNADY, KUGEL, LOGSDEN, LOGSDON, LOOKINGBILL, LOVE, LOVELL, LUSK, LUTZ, LYNCH, MAIN, MAINS, MARTIN, MASSEY, MASTIN, MATTINGLY, McCALL, McELMURRAY, McMURRAY, McPHERSON, MEACHUM, MERCER, MERRITT, MILLER, MINTON, MITCHELL, MOORE, MORGAN, MORRIS, MOSER, MOSIER, MYERS, NEWMAN, NEWTON, NICHOLS, NOEL, OATES, OLIPHANT, PAGE, PARKER, PATE, PAYNE, PEARSON, PHELPS, PILGRIM, PIPPIN, PLEMMONS, PLYMALE, PORTER, PRESTWOOD, PRICE, RAE, RAMSEY, RANDALL, RANDLE, RAY, REED, RHODES, RICE, RICHEY, RIDDLE, RIPPY, ROBERTSON, ROBY, ROULAIN, ROWE, SERVIN, SESSUMS, SHANNON, SHEHAN, SHINGLEBOWER, SHIPMAN, SHIRLEY, SHULTZ, SIMMONS, SIMPSON, SLOAN, SLONE, SMITH, SPURGEON, STARKES, STEFFEN, STEWART, STRIBLING, STRICKLAND, STUART, SWANCEY, SWANZY, SWIHART, SWINHEART, SWORDS, TAMER, TANNER, TAYLOR, TERRELL, TERRY, THOMAS, THOMPSON, TICHENOR, TIPTON, TOLER, TOMER, TONG, TOWNSEND, TROUT, TUMY, TURNER, VIOLETT, WALKER, WALL, WARD, WATKINS, WEATHERFORD, WEBER, WELLS, WHEATLEY, WHIPPLE, WHITE, WILKERSON, WILLABY, WILLIAMS, WILLOBY, WILLOUGHBY, WINFIELD, WISE, WOOD, WRIGHT, YOUMANS and YOUNGBLOOD.
