May 17, 2012

When President Obama hosts the G-8 summit at Camp David on Friday and Saturday, it will be the largest number of foreign leaders ever to visit the presidential retreat at one time. We take a look back on memorable moments held at the campsite, named after President Eisenhower's grandson, David.
