Benjamin Harrison


Benjamin Harrison was served as the 23rd President of the United States. In the American Civil War Harrison served as a Brigadier General in the XX Corps of the Army of the Cumberland. After the war he unsuccessfully ran for the governorship of Indiana, but was later allotted to the U.S. Senate from that state. He is the one and only president from the state of Indiana. His presidential administration is most remembered for its financial legislation, including the McKinley Tariff and the Sherman Antitrust Act, and for annual federal expenses that reached one billion dollars for the first time. He remarried, wrote a book, and later represented the Republic of Venezuela in an international case beside the United Kingdom.
