Millard Fillmore, whose Presidency was filled with controversy and scandal, was our 12th Vice President in 1848, but was elevated to the Presidency in 1850 when Zachary Taylor died in office. He was a member of the Whig party, and then later, the Know Nothing party.
The Teapot Dome scandal was a big deal back then, and it screwed him with a capitol F.
The weird part? He was assigned to me in my 4th grade History class for the topic of a 3 minute oral presentation.
Thanks for filling my head with useless trivia about Millard Freaking Fillmore, Mrs. Wilson.
