Description de l’éditeur
Millard Fillmore is one of two U.S. Presidents from Buffalo, New York. The other is Grover Cleveland. Fillmore took office after serving sixteen months as vice president under Mexican War hero Zachary Taylor. Fillmore is most often associated with signing the Compromise of 1850. After it became law it angered both southerners and northerners in the U.S. The inclusion of the Fugitive Slave Law, obligating the return of runaway slaves, angered northerners. The admission of California into the U.S., as free state, incensed southerners.
