Motivational William Henry Harrison Quotes

William Henry Harrison:- William Henry Harrison (February 9, 1773 – April 4, 1841) was an American military officer and politician who served as the ninth (March 4, 1841 – April 4, 1841)president of the United States. He died of pneumonia thirty-one days into his term, thereby serving the shortest tenure in United States presidential history. Because he was the first president to die in office, his death sparked a brief constitutional crisis and questions and debates about the presidential line of succession.

Harrison was the first member elected to the United States House of Representatives from the Northwest Territory, and later was the first governor of the Indiana Territory. He famously led U.S. military and state militia forces against Native Americans at the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811, where he earned the nickname “Old Tippecanoe”.
