  • Millard Fillmore July 9, 1850-March 3, 1853
  • Franklin Pierce March 4, 1853-March 3, 1857
  • Party: Whig Zachary Taylor was nominated as the Whig party candidate but had no interest in being the party's puppet. He did not do much in concern to the rising slavery issue and died from an illness.
  • James Buchanan March 4, 1857-March 3,1861
  • Party Whig Fillmore took up the presidency after Taylor's death. He approved the Compromise of 1850 but broke it up into five bills that were ratified by Congress.
  • Abraham Lincoln March 4, 1861-April 15, 1865
  • Party: Democrat Only two months before Pierce's inauguration he witnessed his eleven-year old son die in a train wreck. Despite the tragedy he managed to purchase the southern parts of Arizona and new Mexico.
  • Party: Democrat One of "Old Buck"s first actions was to admit Kansas as a slave state to settle Bleeding Kansas. Even though he was pro-slavery he was heavily against secession.
  • Party: Republican (whoo!) Abraham Lincoln's election brought fourth a reckoning from the southern slave states. After the secession of Texas the Confederate states were formed, and after Fort Sumter the Civil War broke out. Lincoln struggled to unite the divided nation.
