  1. Janet, If you haven't already had a chance to do so, you might want to check out my website at www.PresidentialHistory.com. I have a Presidential History Blog there that you can sign up for a free email subscription to. There is also a cool 6 minute video in which I report "live" from a TV newsroom on the surprising returns from the 1916 Presidential election between Woodrow Wilson and Charles Evans Hughes - all based on historical facts - but done so in a way to help make history both accessible and entertaining. There's also a section on the website for "Other Blogs" and you are listed there! All the best, Mike Purdy
