The Hancock-Henderson Quill, Inc.
"The Presidency, even to the most experienced politician, is no bed of roses, and General Taylor (Zachary Taylor), like others, found thorns within it.
No human being can fill that station and escape censure.
Still I hope and believe when General Taylor's official conduct shall come to be viewed in the calm light of history, he will be found to have deserved as little as any who have succeeded him."
-Eulogy on Zachary Taylor, 1850
