This is part of a larger series we are covering on Social Media featuring all the American presidents over until election day. I see this a non-partisan summary of the Presidents in an otherwise negative political election process.
William Henry Harrison, Sr. was the ninth President of the United States, an American military officer and politician, and the last president born as a British subject. He was also the first president to die in office. He was 68 years, 23 days old when inaugurated, the oldest president to take office until Ronald Reagan in 1981. Harrison died on his 32nd day in office of complications from pneumonia, serving the shortest tenure in United States presidential history. His death sparked a brief constitutional crisis, but its resolution left unsettled many questions following the presidential line of succession in regard to Constitution until the passage of the 25th Amendment in 1967. He was the grandfather of Benjamin Harrison, who served as the 23rd President from 1889 to 1893.
Below is a video of the first 9 presidents to catch up on the blog here.
The first nine presidents of the United States were, in chronological order:
1. George Washington (1789-1797) 2. John Adams (1797-1801) 3. Thomas Jefferson (1801-1805) 4. James Madison (1809-1812) 5. James Monroe (1817-1825) 6. Jonh Quincy Adams (1825-1829) 7. Andrew Jackson (1829-1837) 8. Martin Van Buren (1837-1841) 9. William Henry Harrison (1841)
The founding fathers of the United States.
George Washington was a member of the First Continental Congress. He was then chosen to lead the Continental Army. He was the president of the Constitutional Convention and of course became the first president of the United States. In all these leadership positions, he showed a steadfastness of purpose and helped create the precedents and foundations that would form America.
