One a Day

September 2017 - Rapid City SD

Click on this link to get the background on the City of Presidents that I am showing daily.

There is no particular order to my posts.

10. John Tyler

John Tyler was the nation's first Vice President to ever inherit the Presidency after the death of his predecessor. Because of this distinction, Tyler was dubbed "His Accidency" by his opponents. The 10th President was also the first to have an impeachment resolution introduced against him in the House of Representatives. The resolution was ultimately vetoed. John Tyler was an accomplished violinist who was also a student of law. Tyler worked to create the Southern Confederacy after the first southern states seceded in 1861. He died while serving as a member of the Confederate House of Representatives. Tyler stands proudly with his violin on the corner of Mt. Rushmore Rd. & St. Joseph St.

  1. Good to have the background to these historical figures.

  2. His Accidency? Quite a nickname for his detractors to give him.
