    What primary/secondary sources can be used when writing a dissertation on Eisenhower and his engagement with the Civil Rights Movement?

    President Eisenhower is not famously known for his engagement with the Civil Rights Movement. However, upon inspection, he surprisingly contributed a significant amount to the advancement of black civil rights during his presidency. This is why I want to write my university dissertation on how...

    Dwight D. Eisenhower

    I like Ike. He's my current figure of special focus amongst the American presidents, and I'm eagerly learning more about him. In a way, he kind of reminds me of Ulysses S. Grant. Both men were American warlords, who commanded war efforts on an epic scale, and were pretty much carried into the...

    Is Dwight Eisenhower an overrated President?

    Very few Presidents of the United States have benefitted as much from historical revisionism as Dwight Eisenhower. When he first left office, he was widely panned by scholarly opinion as a "slightly daffy, avuncular, golf-loving, TV-dinner-eating, cowboy-novel-reading placeholder president" - a...

    Militarism and the Unending "Great War"

    'Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.' Yup, the famous pre-amble to Eisenhower's denunciation of the "Military-Industrial-Complex" which he thought...

    Jefferson to Adams what Eisenhower was to FDR

    I came across this quote in book and I thought it would grease the wheels of thought. "Jefferson was to Washington and Adams what Dwight Eisenhower was to Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry Truman." What do you think it means?

    The Eisenhower Administration?

    While perusing through my history textbook I began reading about Dwight D. Eisenhower's presidency . From what little I read the Eisenhower Administration left a bad taste in my mouth. I'm not saying he was a bad president...just that he wasn't a great one. How would you rate Eisenhower's...

    Eisenhower family objects to memorial plan

    Eisenhower family objects to proposed plans for memorial I think I have to agree with them. There's one statue, and it's of a barefoot Kansas boy?

    Eisenhower Short Snorter

    Hi, I'm new to the forum, and I'm trying to find some information. As part of my personal collection, I have a short snorter (a 1935A Silver Certificate) hand-signed by Dwight Eisenhower and what appears to be his military unit. It's in pretty great condition, and I'd really like to know who the...

    Eisenhower: Fatal Flaw

    I'm reading a book that went into detail about Eisenhower. What interested me was the authors idea that Eisenhower's policy, or lack thereof, is the reason African Americans have voted for democrats for several years. The analysis basically explained that while Nixon as Vice President...

    Was Eisenhower a Good President?

    I'm curious how you would rate Dwight Eisenhower as president of the US (1953-1961). (I actually thought about this upon learning it's the anniversary of his birth Oct. 14 1890) This time period was just before my lifetime so I don't "remember" it. But I have of course learned of some events...
