William Henry Harrison

On Presidents’ Day, I always celebrate the term of my favorite President, William Henry Harrison.

William Henry Harrison served the shortest presidency in American history. After giving a two hour inaugural address (the longest in American history) in the freezing rain without a hat or coat, he contracted a cold and died after serving only 30 days, twelve hours, and 30 minutes as President.

If only all of our presidents could do so little, and be so inconsequential!
