John Tyler

By Brittany Antonacci March 13, 2020 0 comments

Born on March 29, 1790 at his family plantation in Charles City County, Virginia to a prosperous planter and Virginia Politician—John Tyler had the layout of success virtually at his fingertips. Tyler was given one of the most prestigious educations throughout his childhood and entered the College of William and Mary at only twelve years old and graduates at seventeen. Once he graduated, he had the privilege of studying law under private tutors and was admitted to the bar at the age of nineteen. Tyler began to practice in Richmond and in his free time purchased the Woodburn Plantation and resided there for a few years. As a result of Tyler’s success and enrichment at such a young age, he was able to enter politics and reign successful early on as well.

At the young age of twenty-one he was elected to represent Charles City County in the House of Delegates where he served in succession five, one-year terms. Within his position he displayed a strong support of state rights and an opposition to the re-development of a national bank. Following his terms on the House of Delegates he ran to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives on the fourteenth congress. Through his belief that, “each state should construct necessary projects within its borders using locally generated funds,” and as a result was chosen to participate in the audit of the second national bank. Later, Tyler secured a seat on the U.S. senate with 115-110 popular vote—and through this position he received a mass amount of endorsement for his next venture into the candidacy for president. However, in the 1836 presidential election there had been major rifts within political affiliations, and Tyler ended up being defeated. It wasn’t until he became the vice president of William Henry Harrison that Tyler ended up being in control of the White House, as a result of Harrison’s sudden death. 

Tyler was announced to be the president on April 6, 1841—only two days after Harrison’s death. Taking over presidency at this time, was no easy task as Whig party was predominantly in control. Tyler decided o take a leap of faith and not follow the Whig party principles, thus getting numerous members within congress and in his cabinet to resign. Within this reform he also tried to implement additional tariffs, which in turn caused a massive impeachment attempt. However, Tyler was able to orchestrate the annexation of Texas and during the USS Princeton disaster he was able to keep things in our nation composed and disciplined. Unfortunately, when it came time for re-election, Tyler did not reign victorious and some could blame that primarily on political party altercations.

 After leaving the white house, Tyler for the most part stood out of politics and moved to a Virginia plantation. Within his retirement he spent most of his time focusing on his plantation, which yielded quite a lot of success. Unfortunately, John Tyler passed away on January 18, 1862 from a stroke at the age of 71. Due to his political affiliations at the time, his death was not officially recognized amongst the people of Washington. However, it is safe to say that if it was not for Tyler’s bravery in the face of adversity back then, who knows where America Would be today!
