Millard Fillmore was the thirteenth President of the United States, he started life in a log cabin in the frontier of the United States but later made good by becoming a lawyer. In 1848, he was elected Vice President under Zachary Taylor on the Whig Party ticket. A year later, Taylor died and Taylor assumed the presidency until 1853. He attempted to win a term of his own in 1852 but he lost the Whig nomination to General Winifield Scott and he tried again in 1856 as head of the racist anti-Irish/anti-Catholic Know Nothing Party.

Later in his life, Millard Fillmore opposed Abraham Lincoln but supported the Unionists who wanted to end Slavery.
