Fact of the Day: President Tyler

Following an unpopular presidency, John Tyler did not stay retired. During the outbreak of the Civil War, Tyler sided with the Confederacy. He ran for office and was elected to the Confederate Congress shortly before his death in 1862. He was the only president whose death was not officially recognized by the federal government.
