Our nation’s history is a treasure trove of great works of prose by our presidents, a collection of speeches and documents that can stand on their own but, taken together, also lay out the history of this great country.
George Washington’s farewell address.
The Gettysburg Address.
FDR’s “Day of Infamy” speech.
JFK’s inaugural address.
Barack Obama’s 2004 convention speech.
And, yes, Donald Trump’s 2016 Cinco de Mayo tweet.
