On July 1, 1893, President Grover Cleveland vanished. He boarded a friend's yacht, sailed into Long Island Sound, and disappeared. He would not be heard from again for five days. What happened during those five days was so incredible that, even when the truth was finally revealed, many Americans simply could not believe it.
On the yacht, Cleveland underwent surgery. He had a malignant tumor removed from his mouth, along with much of his upper jaw, which was replaced with a rubber prosthesis. The public was told nothing. It was one of the most brazen and bizarre cover-ups in the annals of the presidency.
The President Is a Sick Man tells the full story of this incredible conspiracy for the first time. It also tells the story of E.J. Edwards, the crusading reporter who uncovered the scandal, only to be branded a liar. And it tells the story of that reporter's belated vindication.
