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


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!”

    Yes, but what does David Barton have to say about Millard Fillmore? (That’s what Texas teachers will need to know — see
    http://curricublog.wordpress.com/2009/07/07/tx-experts-social-studies/ )

    Anyway, I just thought I’d drop a note that somebody reached my blog today by searching on “strengths and weaknesses of Millard Fillmore.” Things in Texas come together in mysterious ways, it seems.
