Charlottesville, Va., has Thomas Jefferson.
New York City can claim Teddy Roosevelt.
And Independence, Mo., is synonymous with our 33rd President, Harry S. Truman. He always called it "the best town in the world."
Truman moved to Independence, just outside Kansas City, Mo., with his family as a young boy. It's where he went to school and, at age six, met the girl who would become his wife: Bess.
It's where he became a judge, in the courthouse that now bears his name.
