MILLARD FILLMORE was the
Thirteenth President of the United States (1850-1853). As a Congressman from New York, Fillmore
helped establish the Whig Party there. He was Vice President under Zachary
Taylor, but was largely ignored. He became President upon Taylor’s death. As President, Fillmore signed the Compromise
of 1850, which he hoped would settle the slavery issue for good. The measure,
however, cost him the support of the Whigs who denied him nomination for
President. In 1856, he was nominated for
President by the Know-Nothings, an anti-immigrant, anti-Catholic party. During the Civil War, he organized a home
guard in Buffalo.
Offering his clipped signature inscribed “Your sincere friend Millard Fillmore” adhered to buff paper card inscribed “Given by Hon. Chas. Francis Adams 1858” at the bottom. Card measures 2 x 6. Comes with a steel engraving of Fillmore. Wonderful for framing.
Glue residue does not affect the elegant and fluid cursive script. CHARLES FRANCIS ADAMS was the grandson of John Adams and son of John Quincy Adams.
