Summary

Though often overlooked, Grover Cleveland was a significant figure in American presidential history. Having run for President three times and gaining the popular vote majority each time, despite losing the electoral college in 1892, Cleveland was unique in the line of nineteenth-century Chief Executives. Presidential historian Henry F. Graff revives Cleveland's fame, explaining how he fought to restore stature to the office in the wake of several weak administrations. The elements of a rags-to-riches story and accounts of the political world that created American leaders before the advent of modern media are also presented here.
