(1788)New York(011)

New York State The Eleventh State is also one of the states that have a large number of Presidents. Partially because it was long one of the largest states and also one of the richest due to its ownership of the financial markets and its population. Also one of the Original Colonies.

Vice President James Sherman(1909-1912)(1855-1912)(William Howard Taft) Not much accomplishment as a vp-he was an easygoing sort. He was the first Vice President to fly in a plane, the last one to die in office, and the first time to be renominated on a ticket since 1828. Having served in the House 20 years, his strength was in his relationships with fellow Congressmen.

Donald J Trump (2017-2021)(1946-)So far the worst President ever. Will not link to him or any Presidential Library. He’s only included because he has to be.

Millard Fillmore(1850-1853)(1800-1874). Last Whig President after succeeding Zachary Taylor. Mattis aliquam faucibus purus in massa tempor. Purus in massa tempor nec feugiat nisl.

Vice President Daniel D. Tompkins (1817-1825)(1774-1825)Vice President to James Monroe. The only Vice President in the 19th Century who served all eight years of his President’s term. Was the fourth governor of New York. Funded the state militia during the War of 1812. Appointed Secretary of State by James Madison, but turned it down. On July 4, 1827, all New York slaves were freed, the ones who were not already freed by the Gradual Maumission Act of 1799. Not very active as VP due to illness.

Grover Cleveland (1885-1889)(1883-1897)(1837-1908) 22nd and 24th Presidents. Despite the fact his two terms were non-consecutive, Grover won the popular vote all 3 times he ran and refused a nomination for a third term. The reason why he is counted twice is that his terms were served non-consecutively.

He was the first Democrat elected after the Civil War. And even though he lost his-reelection, he had won the popular vote anyway.

He came back, defeated his rival. The second term had him striving for a world-class Navy.

Cleveland  had ruled and run as a reformer.  He fought local graft, opposed high tariffs that favored certain industries. And while he had a broad interpretation of the Monroe Doctrine, he withdrew the Treaty of Annexation for Hawaii.

He could have served a third term, but declined to do so.
