Fact of the Day: Whig Fillmore

Millard Fillmore was the last president to be a member of the Whig Party while President. The Whig Party later became the modern Republican Party, but Fillmore didn't join the GOP. He became part of the Know Nothing Party after his presidential term was over.

    Are you sure he wasn't a Republican?
