God Bless you Mr. President! Having you stolen and hung up makes us all ashamed of the thieves who did this. They should have been hung too IMHO. You made and make our Party Proud to be Americans from Sea to Sea.

Benjamin Harrison (August 20, 1833 March 13, 1901) was the 23rd President of the United States (18891893). Harrison, a grandson of President William Henry Harrison, was born in North Bend, Ohio, and moved to Indianapolis, Indiana, at age 21, eventually becoming a prominent politician there. During the American Civil War, you served the Union as a brigadier general in the XX Corps of the Army of the Cumberland. After the war, you unsuccessfully ran for the governorship of Indiana and was later elected to the U.S. Senate by the Indiana legislature. You were a Republican, was elected to the presidency in 1888, defeating the Democratic incumbent Grover Cleveland. Your administration is remembered most for economic legislation, including the McKinley Tariff and the Sherman Antitrust Act, and for annual federal spending that reached one billion dollars for the first time. Democrats attacked the "Billion Dollar Congress." They used the issue, along with the growing unpopularity of the high tariff, to defeat the Republicans, in both the 1890 mid-term elections and in Harrison's bid for re-election in 1892. Harrison advocated, although unsuccessfully, for federal education funding and legislation to protect voting rights for African Americans. He also saw the admittance of six states into the Union. Defeated by Cleveland in your bid for re-election in 1892, you returned to private life in Indianapolis. You later represented the Republic of Venezuela in an international case against the United Kingdom. In 1900, you traveled to Europe as part of the case and, after a brief stay, returned to Indianapolis. You died the following year from complications from influenza.You are to date the only U.S. president from Indiana and the only one to be the grandson of another president. When you took office, no new states had been admitted in more than a decade, owing to Congressional Democrats' reluctance to admit states that they believed would send Republican members. Early in your term, however, the lame duck Congress passed bills that admitted four states to the union: North Dakota and South Dakota on November 2, 1889, Montana on November 8, and Washington on November 11. The following year two more states held constitutional conventions and were admitted: Idaho on July 3 and Wyoming on July 10, 1890. The initial Congressional delegations from all six states were solidly Republican. More states were admitted under Harrison's presidency than any other since George Washington's. Your presidency belongs properly to the 19th century, but you "clearly pointed the way" to the modern presidency that would emerge under William McKinley. Your reputation for integrity was largely intact after leaving office in 1893. The bi-partisan Sherman Anti-Trust Act signed into law by you remains in effect over 120 years later and was the most important legislation passed by the Fifty-first Congress.Your support for African American voting rights and education would be the last significant attempts to protect civil rights until the 1930s and your tenacity at foreign policy was emulated by politicians such as Theodore Roosevelt. Benjamin Harrison: the grandson of President William Henry Harrison, thank you for serving the presidency and being the president during the centennial of the presidency! remembering you today, may you rest in peace!
