New Exhibit: Powers of the President

See Event Description
From George Washington to Abraham Lincoln, FDR to Richard Nixon, presidents have been defining and redefining the office while testing the boundaries of presidential power. This exhibit explores the nature of executive power under the Constitution, and how various presidents have exercised it over time. Discover both key actions by well-known presidents as well as the constitutional legacies of lesser known “forgotten presidents,” and the impact that they all have had while holding our nation’s highest office.
