Join FEE President Lawrence Reed at the Acton Institute in Grand Rapids, MI on Thursday, March 13, 2014 as he gives his talk "American Presidents: The Best and the Worst".

What makes a President “good” or “bad”? Are the views of conventional historians right on such things or should we be looking for second opinions? In this lecture, Larry Reed will offer his answers to these questions, while taking us on a stroll through the triumphs and the follies of some of the 43 men who have occupied the White House.
