Truman Library

This past weekend, I visited the Truman Presidential Museum & Library in Independence, MO. I thought it was well laid out and provided good information on Truman's life prior to becoming president as well as the decisions he was involved with during his presidency. He presided over some major events in history such as the decision to drop the atomic bomb during World War II, the recognition of Israel as a nation, the Korean War, and the founding of the United Nations, among others. Some famous quotes he's known for are "the buck stops here" and "if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen."
