I’m so excited to share this amazing President’s Day project with you. It was coordinated by the very talented Anne of Flour Box Bakery. Anne assigned each of the participants one of the forty four Presidents. A few of the participants made more than one. This is the largest project I’ve been a part of.
Since history was never my favorite subject in school I thought it would be neat to be a part of this and learn a little something in the process.
I was assigned Millard Fillmore. President Fillmore was the 13th President of the United States from July 9, 1850 – March 4, 1853. He was Zachary Taylor’s Vice President and assumed the role of President after Taylor died. He was the last member of the Whig Party to hold the office of President. He was a controversial President because he had different views on slavery. He was a supporter of the Compromise of 1850. When he became President the entire cabinet office offered their resignations and he accepted them.
