This is a 18 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on US Presidents - #9 - William Henry Harrison - Summary. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
William Henry Harrison was the 9th President of the United States, an American military officer and politician, and the last President born as a British subject. He was the grandfather of Benjamin Harrison, who was the 23rd President from 1889 to 1893.
He was also the 1st President to die in office. Harrison died on his 32nd day in office of complications from pneumonia, serving the shortest tenure in United States presidential history. His death sparked a brief constitutional crisis, but its resolution left unsettled many questions following the presidential line of succession in regards to constitution up until the passage of the 25th Amendment in 1967.
The 68-year-old Harrison was sworn into office on March 4, 1841. He was the oldest U.S. president until Ronald Reagan was elected in 1980 at age 69. Harrison gave a lengthy inaugural address–the longest in history–and opted not to wear a coat or hat, despite the inclement weather. 4 weeks later he was dead from pneumonia.
First lady Anna Harrison, who outlived her husband by two decades, became the first presidential widow to receive a pension from Congress –a one-time payment of $25,000, the equivalent of one year of her husband’s White House salary
