Presidential libraries are troves of invaluable documents and priceless national treasures that help Americans shape our understanding of our leaders.
And with George W. Bush's library officially opening in May, Newsmax magazine features an exclusive report, "His Legacy," that offers a fresh look at our 43rd president.
The insightful report by best-selling presidential biographer Douglas Brinkley reveals that the new library could play an important role in shaping the Bush legacy, as historians gain a better understanding of the leader who kept America safe from attack in the tumultuous years following 9/11.
Brinkley shares the highlights of an exclusive, private tour of the Dallas library and museum on Southern Methodist University's stately, tree-lined campus, describing the library as "an architectural masterpiece.'' Its overarching focus, he says, is how 9/11 became the defining moment of the Bush presidency.
Newsmax magazine's special section also features a look at all 13 presidential libraries, including the George Washington library opening in Mount Vernon, Va., in September and the FDR library now being renovated and scheduled for rededication in June. All told, they contain 400 million pages of documents, 10 million photographs, and 15 million feet of motion-picture film.
Plus, Newsmax explores the contest among four venues — one in Hawaii and three in Chicago — vying to become the site of the next repository of presidential memorabilia: the Barack Obama library.
