Harry Truman, typed letter, signed.
Truman is replying to a letter. He continues, “If you added Andrew Jackson after Thomas Jefferson and Grove Cleveland after Abraham Lincoln, you and I would be in complete agreement about our great Presidents.”
It is no wonder that Truman, an ideological Democrat, admired Cleveland: he had been a Democrat in an age of only Republican presidents and, as a youth, had vividly remembered that his own father, John Truman, upon Cleveland’s presidential victory, had ridden a horse in a torchlight parade and placed a flag on top of a tower of their home.
