President Millard Fillmore

Millard Fillmore was the last President not affiliated with either the Democratic or Republican parties.Created by: PICRYLDated: 2016
Millard Fillmore
Millard Fillmore, a member of the Whig party, was the 13th President of the United States (1850-1853) and the last President not to be affiliated with either the Democratic or Republican parties.
The Whig Party was a political party active in the middle of the 19th century. Four Presidents belonged to the Party while in office. Along with the rival Democratic Party, it was central to the Second Party System from the early 1830s to the mid-1850s.
It originally formed in opposition to the policies of President Andrew Jackson (in office 1829–37) and his Democratic Party. The Whigs supported the supremacy of Congress over the Presidency and favored a program of moderniza​tion, banking, and economic protectionism to stimulate manufacturing.
"It is not strange... to mistake change for progress."
