On June 19, 1953, Harry Truman got up early, packed the trunk of his Crysler New Yorker, and did something no other former president has done before or since, he hit the road. No Secret Service protection. No traveling press. Just Harry & Bess, off to visit old friends, take in a Broadway play, celebrate their wedding anniversary in the Big Apple, and blow a bit of the money he'd just received to write his memoirs. Hopefully incognito. In this lively history, author Matthew Algeo meticulously details how Truman's plan to blend in went wonderfuly awry. 288 pages. Softcover.
