James Buchanan was born on April 23, 1791 and died on June 1, 1868.
Buchanan is the only president to be elected from Pennsylvania and the only president who stayed a bachelor for life.
He was a representative of Pennsylvania in the United States House of Representatives and after that at the Senate. He also acted as Minister to Russia under President Andrew Jackson.
After James Buchanan put down a proposition for a position to the Supreme Court, President Franklin Pierce selected him as a minister to the Court of St. James's, where he helped plan the Ostend Manifesto.
James Buchanan was selected by the Democratic Party as a candidate for the 1856 Presidential election.
Buchanan's struggles to preserve peace between the North and the South isolated both sides, and the Southern states stated their secession in the prelude to the American Civil War.
Buchanan was famous for his mantra, "I acknowledge no master but the law."
Historians in both 2006 and 2009 chose his disaster to deal with secession the poorest presidential error ever made.
In 1866, he wrote his public justification as a memoir, Mr. Buchanan's Administration on the Eve of Rebellion.
Buchanan died on June 1, 1868 due to respiratory failure at the age of 77.
