John Tyler (1790-1862) was the 10th President of the United States, taking office after William Henry Harrison died of pneumonia 32 days into his term. This made Tyler the first Vice President to ever rise into presidency. Tyler, though a Republican, vetoed many of the proposals set forth by the party, which inevitably lead to them removing him from the Republican party. He is most known, however, for annexing the Republic of Texas.

About the publisher: Henry Bryan Hall (1808 - 1884) moved to New York in 1850, where he founded the firm H. B. Hall and Sons. He created works featuring important American figures, especially from the colonial and Revolutionary periods. Four of his children became accomplished engravers themselves.
