2. "George Washington: Man and Monument" by Marcus Cunliffe (Little, Brown, 1958).

3. "Thomas Jefferson and the New Nation" by Merrill D. Peterson (Oxford, 1970).


4. "Lincoln" by David Herbert Donald (Simon & Schuster, 1995).

5. "Roosevelt: The Lion and the Fox" by James MacGregor Burns (Harcourt, Brace, Jovanovich, 1956).
