Product Description

The 2014 Christmas card celebrates President Warren G. Harding’s (1865–1923) lifelong love of trains with a watercolor by artist John Hutton. Harding was born and grew up in rural Ohio, in the small city of Corsica, today’s Blooming Grove. During America’s post-Civil War years, the explosive expansion of railroad building across the nation brought faster speed than man had ever known, and lured the imagination to new places. As a boy, Harding determined to grow up to be a locomotive engineer. His future took other paths, but in 1923, as President of the United States on a cross-country tour, his childhood wish came true when he climbed into the cab of an Alaskan Railroad engine and in bliss controlled the speed with his own hands for fifty-one minutes. Artist John Hutton’s colorful illustrations on this card capture President Harding’s childhood dream and his moment of triumph at the throttle and brakes.
