“Some of the Presidents were great and some of them weren't. I can say that, because I wasn't one of the great Presidents, but I had a good time trying to be one, I can tell you that.” – Harry S. Truman, shortly after refusing an effort by Congress to award him the Congressional Medal of Honor on his 87th birthday. Harry Truman followed an American icon to become our 33rd president. Succeeding FDR after only a month as vice-president, Truman assumed the mantle of the leader of the forces trying to end World War II. Known as "His Accidency" for having not been elected to his first term, Truman strove to gain the confidence of the American people. He integrated the armed services, fired a popular general for insubordination and won a very close election in 1948. All the wise pundits thought it was only a matter of time until the last nail was driven into his political coffin and yet, Harry Truman continued to “Give ‘Em Hell” for another four years.
