Zachary Taylor’s death, and Millard Fillmore’s ascendance to the presidency — in detail

July 17, 2009

Elektratig recounts President Zachary Taylor’s death, and Millard Fillmore’s swearing in as the 13th president, in deeper and more interesting detail than I had.

Bookmark that site, social studies teachers: It’s a great site for details on Millard Fillmore that your students won’t find easily anywhere else — and on Zachary Taylor, and on politics and history in general in the two decades prior to the Civil War.  Go see:  “Zachary Taylor is no more!”
