Franklin Pierce, a soldier and politican, was considered a “doughface”, a Northerner who sympatized with the South. In his one term tenure he served more as a moderator between factions in a nation that was increasingly divided over the issue of slavery and states rights. Pierce has the reputation as one of the worst presidents.

Franklin Pierce quote ~

Andrew Johnson (D)

Andrew Johnson, the sixth vice president to become president, was the second to do so due to assassination. Andrew Johnson, the first president to be impeached (and acquited), was the only President to later serve as a Senator. His impeachment was for political reasons as he didn't fit into the ideology of the vendictive Reconstructionist Republican congress.

FYI - Andrew Johnson, who was self taught as was Lincoln, approved the purchase of Alaska that was arranged by Secretary of State Seward.

• “Although a soldier by profession, I have never felt any sort of fondness for war, and I have never advocated it, except as a means of peace.”
• “Leave the matter of religion to the family altar, the church, and the private school, supported entirely by private contributions. Keep the church and state forever separate.”
• “I'm crazy about Grant: his character, his nature, his science in fighting and everything else. But I don't like the idea that he never accepted the blame for anything, always found someone else to blame for any mistake that was ever made, including blaming Prentiss for Shiloh.” ~ Shelby Foote about Grant

Harrison was the grandson of William Henry Harrison and also a brigadier general for the Union in the Civil War. He was elected to the US Senate by the Indiana legislature and served from 1881-1887.

• “I pity the man who wants a coat so cheap that the man or woman who produces the cloth will starve in the process.”
• “We Americans have no commission from God to police the world.”

McKinley's inauguration in 1897 was the first to be recorded on a motion picture camera, a new technology in the late 1800s.

William McKinley quotes ~
• “I do not prize the word ‘cheap.’ It is not a badge of honor. It is a symbol of despair. Cheap prices make for cheap goods; cheap goods make for cheap men; and cheap men make for a cheap country.”
• “Our differences are politics. Our agreements are principles.”
• “I have already transmitted to Congress the report of the naval court of inquiry on the destruction of the battleship Maine in the harbor of Havana during the night of the fifteenth of February. The destruction of that noble vessel has filled the national heart with inexpressible horror. Two hundred and fifty-eight brave sailors and marines and two officers of our Navy, reposing in the fancied security of a friendly harbor, have been hurled to death, grief and want brought to their homes and sorrow to the nation.”

Theodore Roosevelt (R)
(26th President, 1901-1909)
b. 10-27-1858; New York City, NY
d. 1-6-1919

Theodore “Teddy” Rossevelt, a politican, soldier, naturalist, and historian, is a symbol of American optimism and progress at the turn of the 20th century.

After his first wife, Alice Lee Roosevelt, and his mother died on the same day in 1884, he spent much of the next two years on his ranch in the Badlands of Dakota Territory.

TR's nickname was “Rough Rider”, a name he earned in the Spanish-American War as a lieutenant colonel of the Rough Rider Regiment, and noted for leading a charge at the battle of San Juan.

Teddy Roosevelt held that the Government should be the “great arbiter of the conflicting economic forces in the Nation, especially between capital and labor, guaranteeing justice to each and dispensing favors to none.”

TR is also recognized as the most “green” president by The Daily Green for “popularizing the ideas of good resource stewardship and respect for nature” saying he “consistently lobbied Congress for wilderness protection, used the Forest Reserve Act of 1891 to set aside 150 million acres of timberland as public domains, and oversaw creation of the U.S. Forest Service, as well as creating 50 wildlife refuges and five national parks.” [Mesa Verde, CO; Crater Lake, OR; Wind Cave, SD; Sullys Hill, ND (later redesignated a game preserve); and Platt, OK (now part of Chickasaw National Recreation Area).

When Roosevelt read the Upton Sinclair's The Jungle, he ordered an investigation that lead to the Pure Food and Drugs Act and the Meat Inspection Act.

Roosevelt was the uncle to future First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.
Author Owen Wister was a classmate of Roosevelt and dedicated his novel “The Virginian” to Roosevelt.

Theodore Roosevelt quotes ~
• “The government is us; we are the government, you and I.”
• “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
• “Believe you can and you're halfway there.”
• “Courtesy is as much a mark of a gentleman as courage.”
• “If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn't sit for a month.”
• “Speak softly and carry a big stick. . . . ”
• “Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.”
• “To waste, to destroy our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed.

Nobel Peace Prize, 1906 for the Peace Treaty ending the Russo-Japanese War. (Presidents Wilson - 1919, Carter - 2002 & Obama - 2009 also awarded: Al Gore VP - 2007)
• Roosevelt invited cellist Pablo Casals to perform at the White House in 1904, more than 50 years before John F. Kennedy invited Casals to perform.

Woodrow Wilson quotes ~
• “America was established not to create wealth but to realize a vision, to realize an ideal - to discover and maintain liberty among men.”
• “Business underlies everything in our national life, including our spiritual life. Witness the fact that in the Lord's Prayer, the first petition is for daily bread. No one can worship God or love his neighbor on an empty stomach.”
• “At every crisis in one's life, it is absolute salvation to have some sympathetic friend to whom you can think aloud without restraint or misgiving.”
• “We have not given science too big a place in our education, but we have made a perilous mistake in giving it too great a preponderance in method in every other branch of study.”

• “I don't know what to do or where to turn in this taxation matter. Somewhere there must be a book that tells all about it, where I could go to straighten it out in my mind. But I don't know where the book is, and maybe I couldn't read it if I found it.”
• “Every student has the ability to be a successful learner.”
• “I have no trouble with my enemies. I can take care of my enemies in a fight. But my friends, my goddamned friends, they're the ones who keep me walking the floor at nights!”
