Grover Cleveland

Why was Grover Cleveland the 22nd president given the additional label of 24th president upon his reelection instead of being treated as all other presidents who were reelected?

Grover Cleveland became the 22nd president and served for one

term, but was defeated in a reelection bid by Benjamin Harrison,

who became our 23rd president. He later defeated the Democratic

opponent after Harrison's first term, so therefore becoming the

nation's 24th president.
