Ask any American worth their salt what they know about William Henry Harrison, and they'll probably say, "Well, I think he was that president who died only a month into office." Well, that person would be wrong. In truth, the president known as Ol' Tippecanoe actually rewrote American history. How did he do this? By faking his death and joining ranks with a shadow government known only as the Fraternity, which was, until recently, the most super secret conspiracy ever assembled: That is, until it stopped being a secret when a young female reporter found out and had the guts to report it. The Triumph of William Henry Harrison is the story of our ninth president, but it is also the story of Amanda Delacourt. After inheriting the life's work of her deceased mentor, Amanda was shocked to learn he had left her a trail of clues leading to an unbelievable story about a seemingly unremarkable man. Armed with a few inside leads and a bucket of tenacity, Amanda begins a quest to fill in the gaps and bring this momentous story to the public. But it won't be an easy task, because along the way she's forced to outwit Fraternity spies hell-bent on shutting her down. "Luckily" Amanda has assembled a rag-tag group of misfits dedicated to spreading the word about Harrison. With the power of song, pantomime, morbid humor, and love, the only real obstacle to their success is each other. And the Fraternity. And a generally apathetic public. The Triumph of William Henry Harrison was produced, directed, written, filmed, and edited by Daniel Califf-Glick, and stands as his premiere full-length motion picture. Featuring narration by Hollywood legend Edward Asner and a musical score by the inimitable Jacob Sanders, this hysterical, historical mockumentary also includes analyses by Newsweek senior editor and New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Alter, Beltway veteran and Rutgers University political scientist Ross Baker,  Less
