“There is only one form of political strategy in which I have any confidence, and that is to try to do the right thing and sometimes be able to succeed.” Calvin Coolidge
There is a fact those of us who know and love President Calvin Coolidge hold very dear to our hearts: Calvin Coolidge was a true statesman. His conduct over more than thirty years of public life made his country proud. There are few places where one can better explore the high caliber of leadership President Coolidge exemplified besides his Autobiography.
The Foundation feels very strongly that the Fourth of July commemoration of Independence Day is a wonderful opportunity to remind ourselves of the wonder and promise of America. By reading President Coolidge’s Autobiography we gather to reflect and think upon the civic virtue that led a Vermont hill-farm boy to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
At 1:00 p.m. on the Fourth of July, the Coolidge Foundation will lead a full-length, group reading of the Autobiography of Calvin Coolidge. This is an annual tradition, and the public is encouraged to join the reading. The reading will take place in the Union Christian Church in Plymouth Notch. To sign up to read a portion, please contact our Program Associate Rushad Thomas at Rthomas@CoolidgeFoundation.org.
Elevate your Fourth of July with Calvin Coolidge.
