US Election 1840

During Martin Van Buren’s tenure as president, the economy was struggling. As a result, his popularity plummeted along with his vice-president.

As a tale of the times, the Whig Party gained some serious steam. It was William Henry Harrison, who led this party to victory with 234 electoral votes.

But he died only 31 days in office from pneumonia. Due to his death, vice president, John Tyler, took his place by default.
