Overview
Franklin Pierce - Young Hickory of the Granite Hills is the biography of Franklin Pierce, an American politician and the fourteenth President of the United States, serving from 1853 to 1857. To date, Franklin Pierce is the only president from the State of New Hampshire. Pierce was a Democrat and a "doughface" (a Northerner with Southern sympathies) who served in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. Later, Pierce took part in the Mexican-American War and became a brigadier general. The most controversial event of Pierce's presidency was the Kansas-Nebraska Act, which repealed the Missouri Compromise and reopened the question of slavery in the West. Franklin Pierce - Young Hickory of the Granite Hills is highly recommended for those interested in reading more about this popular military figure and American President.
