John Tyler was the 10th President of the United States of America. Who was he? Good question.
Like his predecessor, the short-lived William Henry Harrison, John Tyler was a Whig. What the hell is a whig anyway. During his entire presidency, Tyler sat on his laurels and accomplished absolutely nothing. The only thing he was good at was having kids; he had 15 kids before he died.
Good job. The Doldrums were in full swing by the time of Tyler's presidency, of course.
