Even after leaving presidential office at a time when America was in its ascendance to global power, Harry Truman would call Independence, Missouri, the center of the world." It was already a town rich in the history of westward exploration and spiritual pilgrimage before he began sixty-four years of residence there, but the way it shaped Truman and was, in turn, shaped by him has defined Independence's legacy. That defining relationship is explored here by Truman expert Jon Taylor as it never has been before.
