Taylor, Fillmore & The Disappearance of The Whigs
Show Notes

2 Presidents on the same team with the curious name, the Whig Party.  For this brief moment of time in the mid-1800’s, it was the powerful and divisive home for Zachary Taylor and his VP Millard Fillmore.  But just as soon as this party came to power, they disappeared due to infighting, regional division and…the impending Civil War!
Old rough-n-ready Zachary Taylor, his successor Millard Fillmore and The Whig Party!
