Worst US Presidents in History
Zachary Taylor was president for only nine months: March 1849-July 1850. He's one of the few presidents to come from the Whig party. They nominated him because he was a war hero from the Mexican-American War and the War of 1812. He was also a southerner raised in Kentucky on a plantation, and a slave owner. This seemed to make him the perfect candidate at a time when the North/South conflict was beginning to heat up.
