John Tyler was the tenth President of the United States and the first to succeed to the office next the death of a predecessor. Arguably the most famous and important achievement of Tyler's administration was the capture of the Republic of Texas in 1845. Tyler was the first president born after the acceptance of the U.S. Constitution, the only president to have held the office of President pro tempore of the Senate, and the only former president elected to office in the government of the union during the Civil War.
