Ted Stanke of New York created a symbolic map of the United States out of toy soldiers to protest the Iraq war.
History defined Bush's time in office, and now the world waits to see how history defines him.
We asked readers to share their views on Bush's legacy on iReport.com. What we saw was an overwhelmingly negative appraisal of their sitting president, with some exceptions.
These responses appear to be on par with the views of the nation as a whole, if the numbers are any indication.
Just 27 percent of the respondents to a recent CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll said they approved of Bush's handling of his job as president.
Respondents also indicated they didn't want him to have future influence, with 66 percent saying they didn't want to see the president return to public life. Still, President Bush said during his final news conference Monday that he wasn't planning on spending his newfound free time at the beach.
Many readers with whom we spoke expressed deep frustration over the way Bush handled political issues such as the Iraq war and the economy.
