    Great list! May I recommend three more. Dwight Eisenhower’s childhood home and library are in Abilene (150 miles west of Kansas City), Kansas, http://www.eisenhower.archives.gov. You can do an Eisenhower/Truman tour in a long weekend. Second, Eisenhower’s birthplace is in Denison (an hour north of Dallas), Texas, http://www.eisenhowerbirthplace.org.

    My last recommend is Lincoln’s Summer Cottage in DC, http://www.lincolncottage.org. He wrote the Emancipation Proclamation there. It is three miles north of the White House.

    You are missing two (Ford and McKinley).
