When:

Where:
World Chess Hall of Fame - St. Louis
Category:
Exhibits

Description

While a game replete with Kings and Queens might at first seem antithetical to democratic leadership, commanders-in-chief have continually appreciated chess’ practical benefits and cultural significance, playing to escape the pressures of a stressful job, hosting successful players from around the world, and utilizing the game as a metaphor for larger national and international issues. Through the study of their personal possessions, correspondence, and memorabilia, this exhibit discovers how the so-called “Royal Game” has fascinated American presidents for over two hundred years.
