Although his legacy will be forever linked with the events of 9/11, the Presidency of George W. Bush covered a wide range of issues. His administration ushered in the 21st century--not to mention a new Millennium. Under his leadership, America fought two still-controversial wars, established unprecedented standards for digital surveillance, and popularized the idea of "compassionate conservatism." On the personal side, he was a talented amateur painter; and his wife Laura was the only librarian who has ever served as First Lady. Join historian JB Andersen for an entertaining and enlightening look at President George W. Bush.
J.B. Andersen is the creator of The Presidents Series, one of the most popular history series ever offered in the Twin Cities.
