Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower grew up within 180 miles of each other in America’s heartland. But these two-term presidents and one-time allies diverged politically during the contentious 1952 presidential campaign, when Ike declared his intention to be the Republican standard-bearer. Their meeting at President Kennedy’s 1963 funeral provided a chance for reconciliation. This overview of their life stories and political careers featured Samuel Rushay, Harry S.
