The 31 Day Presidency of William Harrison
Show Notes

William Henry Harrison found a fair amount of success on the battlefield, which turned into a successful career as a Governor, which turned into the first “modern” presidential campaign.  Slogans, songs, and some creative spinning of the truth gave him the keys to The White House.  But before he could really make a difference, his very long speech on a very cold and wet inauguration day led to his early demise, just 31 days later.  The oldest and the first President to die in office, POTUS #9, William Henry Harrison.
