About the Author
Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924) was, famously, the 28th President of the United States, a wartime Commander-in-Chief, and winner of the 1919 Nobel Peace Prize. Before, he was president of Princeton University and the governor of New Jersey. Less famously, earlier still, he was a practicing lawyer, an accomplished professor of political science and jurisprudence, and a prolific scholar and popular author. His books on civics, U.S. history, and presidential biography are classroom and historical classics.
