Publisher's Summary

Millard Fillmore, who fell into the presidency when Zachary Taylor died unexpectedly, is often regarded as a weak leader and a failed chief executive. Eager to show that he could heal the rift between North and South, Fillmore reversed some of Taylor’s cautious policies. He zealously supported the controversial Compromise of 1850, which some historians believe worsened the sectional divide; others, however, insist that it suc­cessfully postponed the Civil War for a decade. Failing to win his own term and watching helplessly as the Whig Party fell apart in the process, Fillmore receded into obscurity, where he remains today.
