President's Day Collaborative Project

Happy President's Day!
I am a complete History Buff..
I love everything about history,
especially Political History,
so when Anne of Flour Box Bakery,
sent out an invitation to join in on a
Collaborative Project to celebrate
President's Day, I jumped right in.
She asked 44 cookiers to
create 44 cookies representing all
44 President's of The United States of America.
WOW...what a fun project.
When I got my assigned President, I was a
little concerned, he is not that famous, he did
very little while in office, but I researched him, and
did my best to make him interesting.
My President was
John Tyler, the 10th President

.
Here are a few fast facts about President Tyler


He was born March 29, 1970,  in Virginia.


He was a lawyer by profession

His term was April 6, 1841-March 3, 1845



He was not elected President, but became President,
when the elected President, Willam Henry Harrison, died,
just one month into his term.

He was often called "His Accidency" because he bacame
President by Accident.



His first wife, Letitia, died, during his term in the White House.

He remarried, while serving in the White House.

He had more children then any other President in history, 15 children,

While it did not become "official" until Noverber of 1845,
Tyler was instrumental at getting the state of Texas, into the Union.
