Presidents and the North American Review

Scholars can study the major narratives of American history by reading the pages of the North American Review, from slavery and the Civil War, to the thoughts of nearly a dozen US presidents. Below are the names several presidents, along with links to writings that appeared in previous issues of the North American Review. Some of these writings only discuss the presidents or their policies, while others were written by the presidents themselves. This list is by no means exhaustive, but it is certainly well worth perusing.

James A. Garfield


Grover Cleveland


Benjamin Harrison


William McKinley


Theodore Roosevelt


Woodrow Wilson
