What was Millard Fillmore known for?

Answer Getting California into the Union as a free state, the Fugitive Slave Act and his effort to open up Japan to Western trade. answer #2) Fillmore will always be known for creating the Compromise of 1850 and preventing the United States from a Civil War for over a decade. He is a very unpopular president and his achievements may be very small and not so great, but they did make a big impact. He is also will be known for his principled foreign policy, and the way he handled foreign countries. He will also be remembered for his creation of the Know Nothing party, who opposed immigration. Fillmore will also be remembered for siding with pro-slavery and for his enforcement of the Fugitive Slave Law. Overall he will never be a popular president, because of his uneventful presidency term. In his personal life, he achieved a great deal, starting with nothing. His father apprenticed him out to work, so he could not go to school. After he was an adult, he worked his way through school, learned to read, became a teacher, studied law on the side and became a lawyer. Then he got into politics, was elected to the NY state assembly and then to the US Congress. He became known in national political circles and was nominated to run for vice-president.

Asked in Millard Fillmore, Peru

What did Millard Filmore negotiate with Peru?

User Avatar
In 1852 the United States and Peru were seriously close to armed conflict and all this fuss was over guano, large deposits of bird feces. Just before and immediately following the American Civil War, Agriculturists in the United States were seeking an effective fertilizer to reverse decades of exhaustive farming practices. This is where guano comes in. Experimented with in the 1840s, by US and UK enthusiasts, the restorative properties of guano were introduced to North America and it was even said that it was "worth its weight in gold." While this is not exactly true, it demonstrates North American farmer's views of the substance. However as with any "miracle" substance, when demand is much greater than supply, conflict inevitably results. The Peruvian monopoly of guano exportation from the Lobos Islands (~30 miles off the coast of Peru) was a sore spot for some in the United States, as the island's contents were being held as a reserve by the Peruvian government. It was at this point that Secretary of State Daniel Webster authorized the protection of a group of "guano-preneurs" who wished to harvest the islands resources. It was this breach of Peruvian sovereignty that caused the conflict with Peru and would ultimately necessitate the intervention of President Fillmore.

Asked in History of the United States, US Presidents, Millard Fillmore

Who was the last whig to be elected?

User Avatar
At the federal level, it was probably President Zachary Taylor in 1849. The Whig party operated in the USA during the period from the 1830s to the mid-1850s. It was briefly influential, but by the mid-1850s, it was almost totally defunct. The last Whig to serve as a US president was Millard Fillmore, from 1850-1853; he was not elected to that office, however. He was Zachary Taylor's vice president and assumed the presidency when Taylor (also a Whig) suddenly died. In 1851, Fillmore appointed the only Whig Supreme Court Justice, Benjamin R. Curtis. In the United States, the last member of the Whig Party to be elected to the office of US President was Millard Filmore. He was the 13th US President and served from 1850 to 1853. His home State was New York.

What is Millard Fillmore's bathtub metaphor?

User Avatar
H. L. Mencken wrote a hoax column in 1917, about how Millard Fillmore's only great achievement was adding a plumbed bathtub to the White House. The entire story was a hoax. The story found its way into encyclopedias, histories of the bathtub, and political lore. "Millard Fillmore's bathtub" refers to a story many claim to be true, which is not; or it refers to a hoax gone wrong when people believe it as fact rather than as humor. See the blog site, Millard Fillmore's Bathtub, for more examples. Ed Darrell Millard Fillmore's Bathtub
