Description: Famous last words: "'Tis well". "I wish you to understand the true principles of the government. I wish them carried out. I ask nothing more". "The nourishment is palatable". Which three famous people uttered one of these phrases on their deathbeds? (Hint: they all served as president of the United States). The answers to these and many other questions about the last days of U.S. presidents appear in Who's Buried in Grant's Tomb?

To mark its twentieth year of broadcasting, C-SPAN presented a special television series, American Presidents: Life Portraits, which focused on one president each week and visited sites related to each president -- their homes, libraries, gravesites, or other significant places. The project resulted In the most comprehensive video record of the lives of the 41 men who served as president of the United States. As a complement to this project, Who's Buried in Grant's Tomb? provides a guide to all 41 presidential gravesites, including sites selected for living presidents. Each chapter focuses on one president and Includes birth and death dates; the time, place, and cause of death; final words; location of the gravesite and price of admission. Photos of each gravesite and original oil portraits of each president supplement the narrative, which tells about the circumstances of each man's death, funeral services, and last wishes.

Starting at the end of each president's life, Who's Buried in Grant's Tomb? offers a fascinatingly different approach to these famous men. The book supplies some interesting trivia, such as the last words of George Washington, William Henry Harrison, and Millard Fillmore quoted above, and highlights some neglected historical moments,including the massive crowd of 60,000 people who marched in Ulysses S. Grant's funeral procession, as well as early medical advice to presidents who suffered from heart disease or cancer. Who's Buried in Grant's Tomb? can also be used as a tourbook to visit the sites and learn more about the 41 U.S. presidents. This 305-page book includes a foreword by Richard Norton Smith and an afterword by Douglas Brinkley.
