Had it not been for Washington, there would not be an “Honest Abe”. Here’s to to the Old Dutch and cherrie trees…
Imagine life without Texas. It took President Martin Van Buren’s watchful eye to foil the annexation of the Lone Star state to Mexico during his four year tenure (1837-1841). A man of war avoiding war.
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.
