Join Dr. Stephen A. Goldman on a visual tour of the entire scope of Presidential elections in the United States, from its founding in 1788 to the present day. See how the newspaper display changed dramatically over 3 centuries of covering the winners, losers, and “oops, got it wrongers”. You may be surprised to find out who really won or lost these elections in spite of what you were taught in high school history.
