John Tyler

Author Code: AJTX

Born: Mar. 29, 1790 - Charles City County, Virginia, USA

Died: Jan. 18, 1862 - Richmond, Virginia, USA

After completing his law studies in Virginia, Tyler was elected to the Virginia legislature at the age of 21. He served in the U.S. House of Representatives for four years (1816-1819), but returned to the state legislature for a brief period. He was elected governor of Virginia in 1825 and in 1827 was elected to the U.S. Senate. After more than a decade in the Senate, he resigned in 1836 rather than reverse his decision to censure President Jackson for removing deposits from the Bank of the United States. Chosen by the Whig party because of his admiration of Henry Clay (The Whig leader of the Senate) and his independent views, Tyler ran as vice-presidential candidate on the ticket with William Henry Harrison. Tyler became the first vice-president to succeed to the office of president on the death of Harrison only a month after his inauguration in 1841.

As president, Tyler immediately infuriated the Whigs by vetoing two bills that they sponsored. After a failed attempt at impeachment, most of Tyler's cabinet quit their positions. The only one to remain was Daniel Webster, the secretary of state. His last act as president was to sign the bill which resulted in the annexation of Texas. Tyler, always a strong defender of states' rights, was elected to the Virginia convention to consider secession just prior to the Civil War and voted for withdrawal. He served briefly in the Confederate Congress prior to his death in 1862.
