Mark Schuler: William Harrison
Artist: Mark Schuler
In his younger years, William Henry Harrison gained the respect of his fellow Americans by gathering vast tracts of land for his country through treaties with the Indians. Then, in 1811 he fought the famous battle of Tippecanoe and his name became legend. Through these and other exploits, Harrison became a national hero and gained seats in the Ohio Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate prior to becoming President. To demonstrate his soldier-like vigor on Inauguration Day, William Henry Harrison road hatless and coatless to his inauguration. Then he stood in the cold, damp air to deliver his inaugural address. It proved to be too much for him. For on April 4, 1841, just one month after taking office, President Harrison died of pneumonia.
