Personal Quote:

I thought [Richard Nixon] was the worst President we had ever had, save only perhaps Andrew Johnson. See more »


Shortly before his death in 2002, Ambrose was accused of plagiarizing work from several sources. It was later shown that the material was simply cited incorrectly rather than stolen; Ambrose contained source information in footnotes, but neglected to place the passages in traditional quotation marks.
