IDYLLWILD LIBRARY Presidents Book CLub ~ Zachary Taylor

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Event Details

Join us as we discuss the presidents in chronological order of their office. December we will be discussing our 12th president, Zachary Taylor. "Zachary Taylor, a general and national hero in the United States Army from the time of the Mexican-American War and the War of 1812, was elected the 12th U.S. President, serving from March 1849 until his death in July 1850. Northerners and Southerners disputed sharply whether the territories wrested from Mexico should be opened to slavery, and some Southerners even threatened secession. Standing firm, Zachary Taylor was prepared to hold the Union together by armed force rather than by compromise." You may read any book you like (we provide a selection for you to choose from) or you may prefer to visit whitehouse.gov for a quick history of the president in discussion.The Presidents Club meets in the even months. December we will meet on the 2nd Wednesday instead of the 4th Wednesday. Please join us.
