Editor’s note: This is the twenty-third entry in the writer’s year-long project to read one book about each of the U.S. Presidents in the year prior to Election Day 2016. You can also follow Marcus’ progress at the @44in52 Twitter account and with this 44 in 52 Spreadsheet.

When an editor asked me how best to describe the next president in the series, Benjamin Harrison, the best I could muster was this: “A cold, austere asshole. Like Andrew Johnson except without the virulent racism, the obstinance, and he actually accomplished stuff. So really, not like Andrew Johnson at all.”
