Oval Office Knowledge Cards, Vol. II

In 1789, George Washington became the first president of the United States of America. A few years later, a contest was held for the design of a "President's House." Nine hopefuls, including future president Thomas Jefferson, submitted plans,. But it was architect James Hoban who won the commission. Hoban's original drawing included a large, egg-shaped room (now known as the Blue Room in the White House), which inspired the creation of the Oval Office in the early twentieth century. This deck of 48 question and answer cards gives the reader a peek through the Oval Office keyhole, answering questions like: Which president first phoned a man on the moon; Who was sworn into presidential office by his father; and Which president's likeness first appeared on a U.S. coin? The Oval Office Vol. II is the perfect way to learn more about the American presidency, from George Washington to Barack Obama.
