Course Detail: OSH-OBPRES - Five Obscure Presidents (And Why They Matter)

Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Wilson, Roosevelt (both Theodore and Franklin), and a handful of other U.S. Presidents are household names. Their images appear on money; cities, towns, and schools are named for them, and one, Andrew Jackson, is associated with an entire age. Their impact on American society is unquestionable. However, there are a handful of lesser-known Chief Executives whose decisions changed the course of American history: Martin Van Buren, James K. Polk, John Tyler, Franklin Pierce, and Rutherford B. Hayes. This course will study their Presidencies and explain why they matter.
