This was a very, and I stress very, brief biography of Millard Fillmore. It supplied a few major notes of interest but definitely for a history not enough.

I had requested a more in depth biography from ILL but it didn't seem to be coming and then I was notified that my Franklin Pierce ILL was in and so I ordered this book to have something for Millard Fillmore. Wouldn't you know when I went to the library to get this and Franklin Pierce, the other ILL had showed up. I thought I'd whip through this one just in case it was enough, but no such luck.

Is there a particular reason that you are reading biographies of obscure US Presidents? I always admire people who have broad reading tastes. You rock!

I am in the middle of a US Presidents Challenge to read the biographies of all the Presidents by the end of the current President's term in office. I've been working on reading them starting with Washington and so far I am at Fillmore. this one was a little lite so I have another that I'm currently in the midst of. I'm finding it extremely enlightening especially when it comes to the obscure Presidents.
