Show Notes

Benjamin Harrison followed in the path of his POTUS Grandfather, calling Indiana home, serving in the military, the Senate and the White House.  While he won the presidency in a squeaker, he was way more successful than Grandpa, modernizing the navy and pushing for African-American voting rights.  But just when he got things going, this grandson POTUS who defeated Grover Cleveland, then lost to the same man just 4 years later!  It’s a tale of family legacy, very close elections, and a political opponent who just would not go away!
