Chester Alan Arthur: The Life of a Gilded Age Politician and President – Gregory J. Dehler

Portrait of a man with a tremendous mustache Every high school history student knows of Washington, Jefferson, and Obama, but sometimes our lesser-known presidents get forgotten in the annals of time. Chester A. Arthur is one of those men. Thrust into office after the assassination of President Garfield, Arthur became known as a champion of reform in 19th century Washington. Dehler paints a vivid portrait of President Arthur that enlightens us to one of history’s often-forgotten workhorses.
