John Tyler

John Tyler (March 29, 1790 – January 18, 1862) became the tenth President of the United States (1841–45) after serving briefly as the tenth Vice President (1841); he was elected to the latter office on the 1840 Whig ticket with President William Henry Harrison. Tyler ascended to the presidency after Harrison's death in April 1841, a mere month after the start of the new administration. Known as a supporter of states' rights, his actions as president showed that he was willing to back nationalist policies when they did not infringe on the powers of the states. His unexpected rise to the presidency, with the resulting threat to the presidential ambitions of Henry Clay and other politicians, left him estranged from both major parties.
