Number Fourteen

11/23/2009

Franklin Pierce served as our nations 14th President during the dog days of its growth, a single term from 1853-1857.  Hailed as a traitor by many, mostly due to his opinion of anti-succession, this father of three (each of his children having died before the age of 13) was quoted as saying, “You have summoned me in my weakness. You must sustain me by your strength.”  Wise words from someone with so much loss.
