13:120 Who Was Woodrow Wilson by Margaret Frith

A brief biography of Woodrow Wilson from birth to death.  We see him struggle to learn to read and not enjoy learning until he was 16 years old but then how his thirst for knowledge took off after that, how he became interested in law and politics, how being president of universities helped hone him for the role of president, how being a child in the South during the Civil War shaped his thoughts on WWI.  Again, we got to see how important a person's early life was in determining their character and shaping their thoughts and policies as president.
