Has John F. Kennedy's Eternal Flame really burned continuously for the past 55 years? Was James Garfield killed by his assassin's bullet, or by incompetent doctors? And why is Millard Fillmore buried next to funk legend Rick James? The lives of the presidents often make for interesting reading, but the stories of their deaths—and their often peculiar posthumous adventures—prove to be even more compelling in this illustrated, anecdotal tour by Brady Carlson. From the Washington Monument to Grant's tomb, and from Monticello to Mount Rushmore, the NPR commentator travels the country to discover why presidential reputations rise and fall, and what our commemorations of these departed leaders say about America as a nation.
