John Tyler (1790-1862) filled in as America’s tenth president from 1841 to 1845. He took office after the demise of President William Henry Harrison (1773-1841), who died from pneumonia after only a month in the White House. Nicknamed “His Accidency,” Tyler was the primary VP to get CEO because of the passing of his antecedent.

A Virginian, he was chosen for the state lawmaking body at age 21 and proceeded to serve in the U.S. Congress and as legislative head of Virginia. A solid supporter of states’ privileges, Tyler was a Democratic-Republican; be that as it may, in 1840 he ran for the bad habit administration on the Whig ticket. As president, Tyler conflicted with the Whigs, who later attempted, fruitlessly, to impugn him.

Among his organization’s achievements was the 1845 extension of Texas. Before he kicked the bucket, Tyler decided in favor of Virginia’s withdrawal from the Union and was chosen for the Confederate Congress.
