Overview

John Tyler, elected vice president under William Henry Harrison was the first vice president to succeed to the presidency when Harrison died only one month into his term. When Tyler vetoed bills passed by his Whig party in congress, his cabinet resigned, and he was expelled from the party, becoming the "President without a party," and was the target of violent demonstrations. After his wife died in the White House, Tyler courted and married Julia Gardiner, 30 years his junior, and she became the most admired White House hostess since Dolley Madison. His major accomplishment was the annexation of Texas, which he signed into law in the last week of his term.

A biography of the Virginian who became tenth president of the United States upon the death of William Henry Harrison.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-These entries in the second series of the standard "Encyclopedia of Presidents" are fresher and more welcoming than those in the first. While some people may consider these two men among the weakest and most obscure of the early presidents, each author shows how historical perspectives have reinterpreted their relevancy in the interim. Each book covers its subject's entire life, concentrating on the years and accomplishments in office, and both conclude by summarizing his strengths and weaknesses. Both titles feature a map of what the U.S. looked like at the time the man took office (the states are unlabeled). Sidebars on the vice president and/or First Lady; "Fast Facts," time lines; recommended sites, both Web and terrestrial; highlighted primary sources; and tables that include brief facts and photos of all 43 presidents appear in both books. The blank pages and extensive margins and white space help achieve that holy grail of middle-grade assignments: a 100-page biography. Fortunately, more significant space is given to high-quality reproductions and illustrations, many in full color. Worthwhile updates.-Andrew Medlar, Chicago Public Library, IL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
