Overview

William Henry Harrison may have been the most unlucky president. Nominated by the Whig Party because he had no enemies in Washington, he was elected after a novel, riotous campaign. Portrayed as a champion of the common man. Harrison was symbolized by the simple log cabin (in which he supposedly lived) and hard cider (which he supposedly drank). The campaign's catchy slogan. "Tippecanoe and Tyler Too" reminded voters of Harrison's leadership in a battle with the Indians at Tippecanoe in the Indiana territory nineteen years earlier and named his vicepresidential running mate. Three weeks after his inauguration he became ill, and he died after serving as president for only thirty days.
