Description of Pictures: I Wish I'd Been There, Byron Hollinshead:
What is the scene or incident in American history that you would like to have witnessed and why? This is the thought-provoking question that author Byron Hollinshead posed to 20 American historians with the invitation to write a personal essay in return. The result is the book "I Wish I'd Been There".
Tonight, Hollinshead is joined by three of the historians who contributed to the book: Robert Remini, Historian of the U.S. House of Representatives; Jay Winik, senior scholar at the University of Maryland's School of Public Affairs; and Robert Dallek, professor of history emeritus at UCLA -- each of whom responded by describing significant events in American Presidential history.
Welcoming remarks were provided by Lee Ann Potter, Head of Education and Volunteer Programs, Center for the National Archives Experience.

Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested.

I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, some system options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm sure you're thrilled by your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
Featured Folk: Some of the people here can also be seen on other pages on this site.
