Season 1, Episode 41: George HW Bush and Milton

Heading to Milton, Massachusetts, for the birthplace of George H.W. Bush, 41st President, who you’ll be forgiven for thinking was born and raised in Texas. Instead, explore how his privileged childhood led him to strike out on his own, as well as his political rise and what became of his birthplace!
