Publisher's Summary

A biography of the responsible and dutiful 10th president of the United States, who was the first to take over the office after an elected president died in office.

After the death of the ninth president of the United States - William Henry Harrison - the United States faced unanticipated turmoil. A president had never yet died before the end of his term. With rumors flying about and the fate of the still relatively new American government uncertain, Vice President John Tyler stepped into the role of his late childhood friend. John Tyler: A Fascinating Biography of the 10th United States President is the true story of a man who was thrust into leadership when his predecessor’s term ended after just 31 days.

Despite stepping up to save the country from chaos, John Tyler would soon lose favor with his own party, the Whigs. His belief in his responsibility to the government would drive away allies who were determined to push their own party’s agenda. He would also be rejected by the opposing Democratic party, thus becoming a president who belonged to no party at all. John Tyler would never relent in his obligation to the office or his duty to the people.

Excellent

Excellent narration, along with an interesting glimpse back to the issues in that era of time. Along with giving us a look at these founders who became leaders. Well done and enjoyed.
