His Accidency

Magnet #936 - John Tyler (1841-1845)

Ok. Here's weird. Check out this magnet. And compare it with this John Tyler image. What up with that?

Yesterday, I did a flipbook commemorating our BFF trip to Presidents Park, and I had to go through and caption all of the presidents and the years of their administrations. Which was when I realized the 1841 saw three presidents sit in office.

It was an election year, so out went Martin Van Buren.

A month after his superoverlong inauguration speech, William Henry Harrison caught his death of cold and pneumonia, which then left "Tyler, too" holding the bag.

What a busy year for America. I wonder how it affected the American public. I mean, I can't imagine if that happened in modern times, it would create such a feeling of uncertainty, I'm sure. Plus, imagine all the business cards they'd have to throw out.

Wait. Does the president have business cards?
Pin It!
