Fear and Loathing in the White House



This is one of the books that Caro refers to in describing the mutual contempt between Johnson and Robert Kennedy.  There is another one entitled Bad Blood, but it doesn't get as good reviews.

  1. I don't know where to put this photo but guarantee you will be startled to see George Armstrong Custer and friends in a new light:

  2. That looks like Nathan Bedford Forrest to his right. Do you have any info to go with the photo, trip, you can start a new post.

  3. Amazing photo -- usually these colored ones look artificial, garish even. The power of the computer.

    I assumed it was a Matthew Brady photo but I was wrong. It was someone named James Gibson:
