Monday Tiger Blog – Happy Presidents Day

Presidents' Day

Today is presidents day.

As you know, two presidents of the United States, James Madison and Woodrow Wilson, graduated from Princeton. A few others, like Adlai Stevenson, who lost twice to Dwight Eisenhower, and Bill Bradley, whose time was a little off.

Next, Aaron Burr, graduated from Princeton, 1772. Lesson: His father, Aaron Burr, was also the second president of Princeton, and he took over the college in 1747 when there were eight students in New Jersey. In fact, when the college was founded in 1755, Burr was a senior. He moved from Newark to Princeton.

In the previous elections of 1800, he actually went to 1801. The president who received the most electoral votes was followed by the vice president.

Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr were nominated as President and Vice President, respectively, by the Democratic-Republican Party. The candidate of the Federalists was at that time John Adams. Jefferson and Burr received the same number of electoral votes and sent the election to the House of Representatives.

Jefferson needed 36 votes to win, with Burr as vice president. Burr wasn’t much better after that.

  1. Jefferson was impeached in 1804.
  2. Lost the race for governor of New York by a large margin.
  3. Was awarded the man he killed in the famous duel. Against Alexander Hamilton.

Barr encountered other obstacles such as persecution. At the age of 80, he passed away in 1836. He is buried… in Princeton Cemetery, the final resting place of former President Grover Cleveland.
