Millard Fillmore: 2 Fast 2 Furious!

Millard Fillmore was easily our most exciting, exhilerating president. The Compromise of 1850 is considered by historians to be “100% pure adrenaline.”

Before becoming president, Fillmore was a four-term Congressman from New York. Extreme!

Here are some ass-kicking, fist-crunching facts about Millard Fillmore:

  • In 1851, Herbert Melville’s “Moby Dick” was published, which is the most exciting book ever to feature three consecutive chapters about why paintings of whales pale in comparison to actual whales. Radical!
  • Millard Fillmore was proud of his extensive stamp collection. Wicked!
  • An incident in the life of Millard Fillmore later inspired the movie “Speed.” Once, Fillmore rode a horse rigged to explode if it went under four miles per hour. Cool!
