There have been four ELECTED Whig (US) presidents. Wrong!

There have been four Whig presidents. Harrison and Taylor lived one and four months respectively until they died of non-violent events. Tyler and Fillmore were Whigs that came to office after Harrison and Taylor died.

There have been TWO elected Whig presidents. Total time in office… 5 months!

Dear Cliff Rainey,

Kindly forgive the lateness of this reply.

You are exactly right. Millard Fillmore was the fourth Whig to take that high office. The article, as well as the second Whig president, John Tyler’s, has been modified due to your fine observation and comment.

Thank you and keep reading,
Robert Brooks
