Millard Fillmore was served as the 13th President of the United States, and the final member of the Whig Party to hold that office. He became the second Vice President to guess the presidency after the death of a sitting president when he succeeded Zachary Taylor, who died of sensitive gastroenteritis. Fillmore was not at all elected president. After helping out Taylor's term, he failed to achieve the nomination of the Whigs for president in the 1852 presidential election, and, four years later, in the 1856 presidential election, he another time failed to win election as the Know Nothing Party and Whig candidate.
