The pundits and the public agree that the 2020 Presidential Election will be one of the most critical in our nation’s history. Rarely have political, public health and economic issues converged to create the kind of crisis that the country has faced in recent months.
Yet our political process has endured catastrophic reverses, ethical fissures and public emergencies before. Please join popular historian J.B. Andersen for a look at some of the most desperate moments in our electoral history—how they happened and how our nation survived.
J. B. Andersen is a historian and the creator of the immensely popular History of the Presidents OLLI series.
