Did you know the our 9th president of the United States was only in office for a month?! That’s right. He started out his presidency by giving the longest inaugural address in history. It was freezing cold and rainy outside and he didn’t wear a hat or coat. Just like your mom always told you could happen, he caught a cold. A month later he died from pneumonia. 🙁
Despite his short tenure as president, he did have an interesting life and served in the U.S. military and government in many different ways before becoming president.
