Dwight D. Eisenhower was not the United States' most forceful or dynamic President or the most eloquent public speaker. Eisenhower never put on airs and his speeches are a direct reflection of his era. But he was a man of his time, and his honest down-home Kansas farm boy style struck 1950s America as a true note. This program covers the indelible words of this American president. It contains all of his major addresses, as well as some illuminating and little known facts about his presidency.
