The Eisenhower Memorial v. The Eisenhower Family

Wednesday, February 08, 2012

President Dwight D. Eisenhower is most commonly remembered as a vocal opponent of communism and a leader who ushered in one of America's most prosperous eras. But a new national memorial in Washington D.C. offers a different image: designed by famed architect Frank Gehry, the proposed monument features Eisenhower as a young, barefoot boy in Abilene, Kansas, gazing on images of his adult accomplishments. This has been met by criticism, mostly from Eisenhower's family.

Susan Eisenhower is one of President Eisenhower’s granddaughters. She’s also the president of the Eisenhower Group, and a leading expert in international security and international relations.
