The White House: Inside America's Most Famous Home - Part 3
In this section of the documentary, Harry Truman tells us about adding the Truman Balcony, and we learn about his complete renovation of the White House from 1948-52, including a focus on the addition of the Grand Staircase which Presidents and their diplomatic guests descend guests during State Dinners. We then travel further back in time to look at the Madison’s time in the White House, and then how their successors, the Monroes, influence the White House we see today. Finally, we learn about how the Kennedy's bring back the history of the White House and set a precedent for future First Families. Featured in this section are the Red, Blue, and Treaty rooms and First Lady Michelle Obama and President George W. Bush.
