Today is the 244th birthday of the tenth president of the United States, John Tyler. If he is remembered at all, President Tyler remembered for being the first Vice-President to become President upon the death of the President. President Tyler might also be remembered for being the back half of the political slogan "Tippecanoe and Tyler too."
But what I find most incredible about President Tyler is that two of his grandsons, Lyon Tyler and Harrison Tyler, are still alive. Amazing when one considers that President Tyler died 152 years ago.
