James Buchanan

James Buchanan was an o.k. president. He wasn ‘t great like Lincoln though. He was the 15th President of United States. He was the only president that was not married. His niece acted as First Lady. He was born on April 23rd, 1791 in Cove Gap, Pennsylvania. He died on June 1st, 1868, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. His vice president was John Cabell Breckinridge. His time as president lasted from 1857 – 1861. James Buchanan thought they didn ‘t need a debate over slavery because the Constitution said slavery was allowed.   Again some think ” all men are created equal” some still don’t think that thought. I think America is a great place but we still can always keep improving on America.
