Millard Fillmore, future 13th President of the United States, was born on January 7, 1800, in upstate New York.
Victim of one of the most infamous hoaxes in history, Millard Fillmore’s good works are often forgotten.
It’s that hoax that gives the name to this blog, and preventing or stopping other similar hoaxes which is the hope of the author.
In the past 50 years residents of Buffalo revived the reputation of Fillmore, and started a tradition of celebrating his birthday.
But so far as I have found, no bathtub races occurred this year.
