Millard Fillmore


I finally managed to edit a painting of Millard Fillmore, from the White House site, to fit the header. Fillmore is generally considered to be one of the worst presidents ever, but the capital of Utah was once named for him when the Mormons were trying to win his favor to gain statehood (Fillmore, in Millard County — the capital was moved later). It didn’t work, and Utah didn’t achieve statehood for another four decades.

I am still looking for a picture of his actual bathtub.

    In some quarters that would be considered mean, J.C. But go see this, in the May Rolling Stone: http://www.rollingstone.com/news/profile/story/9961300/the_worst_president_in_history

    And I so wish he´d been our president for the last 6 years or so.

  3. That is a great use of the painting – the way you modified it is an excellent header image. Three cheers!
