"Upstairs in the White House there is a long table . . . the fingerprints of all who touch it are a part of its story."
Fingerprints on the Table: The Story of the White House Treaty Table by Connie Remlinger Trounstine, illustrated by Kerry P. Talbott, tells the story of the historic Treaty Table, a real object that remains in the White House collection today. Through moving illustrations, the story of the Table is told from its construction in 1869 to its use at the White House by Presidents Ulysses S. Grant to Barack Obama as a Cabinet Room Table, as setting for the signing of important peace treaties, and as a presidential workspace. The author speculates on whether the presidents' children may have also left their fingerprints on this historic object over the years.
