Presidents from the past on this President’s Day

(from top left to right and then bottom left to right)

Notes:

  • Millard Fillmore (our 13th president):
    and the last to be a member of the Whig Party while in the White House. A former U.S. representative from New York, Fillmore was elected the nation’s 12th vice president in 1848, and succeeded to the presidency in July 1850 upon the death of President Zachary Taylor.
  • He was instrumental in the passing of the Compromise of 1850, a bargain that led to a brief truce in the battle over slavery. He failed to win the Whig nomination for president in 1852; he gained the endorsement of the nativist Know Nothing Party four years later, finishing third in the 1856 presidential election:

  • John Quincy Adams (our 6th president): was an American statesman, diplomat, lawyer, and diarist who served as the sixth president of the United States from 1825 to 1829. Adams also served as an ambassador, and as a member of the United States Senate and United States House of Representatives representing Massachusetts.
  • He was the eldest son of John Adams, who served as the second US president from 1797 to 1801, and First Lady Abigail Adams. Initially a Federalist like his father, he won election to the presidency as a member of the Democratic-Republican Party, and in the mid-1830s became affiliated with the Whig Party:

  • William McKinley (our 25th president): serving from March 4, 1897, until his assassination six months into his second term. During his presidency, McKinley led the nation to victory in the Spanish–American War, raised protective tariffs to promote American industry and kept the nation on the gold standard in a rejection of free silver (effectively, expansionary monetary policy).
  • McKinley was the last president to have served in the American Civil War and the only one to have started the war as an enlisted soldier, beginning as a private in the Union Army and ending as a brevet major:

During World War II, he became a five-star general in the Army and served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force in Europe. He was responsible for planning and supervising the invasion of North Africa in Operation Torch in 1942–43 and the successful invasion of Normandy in 1944–45 from the Western Front:
