Talmage Boston – Biographical Brief

Talmage-BostonFor over 38 years, Talmage Boston’s vocation has been getting to the heart of his cases by asking the right questions—and not stopping until he gets them answered. Three years ago, he had an epiphany: What if he used his examination skills to go deeper into his lifelong avocation—the study of presidential history?

Talmage has now followed through on that epiphany with his new book, “Cross-Examining History: A Lawyer Gets Answers From the Experts About Our Presidents.”

The final product contains thirty-one edited transcripts of his onstage interviews from all over the country with some of America’s leading presidential historians and presidential insiders.

The response to Talmage’s project in the history community has been amazing. Major recognition of his work has come from the likes of former Secretary of State James A. Baker, III; Pulitzer Prize winners David McCullough and Jon Meacham; New York Times best-selling historians Douglas Brinkley and H.W. Brands; and Emmy Award winning documentary filmmaker Ken Burns.

The country’s leading Abraham Lincoln scholar Harold Holzer may have said it best about the experience of having a seasoned trial lawyer, who knows presidential history inside and out, get answers from the experts in response to the most important questions Americans should have about our leading Commanders-in-Chief:

“Combining the curiosity of Charlie Rose with the gravitas of Edward R. Murrow, Talmage Boston brings out the best in his subjects and truly makes history come alive. What an honor to have been in his witness chair!”
