But, since we live in NH, we all know Pierce served as President of the United States from 1853-1857. He is our only citizen to have been elected President.
The Library of Congress recently announced that it has made a Franklin Pierce Resource Guide available online. The Guide provides links to various Pierce materials from a copy of a condolence letter Pierce wrote to Abraham Lincoln when Lincoln's son Willie died, to sheet music for "President Pierce's March and Quick Step."
The Guide should be especially handy when fourth graders do NH biography reports! Students can also visit our children's room for biographical resources such as Franklin Pierce by Anne Welsbacher [J B PIE], Franklin Pierce: Fourteenth President of the United States by Charnan Simon [J B PIE], and Jane Means Appleton Pierce by Deborah Kent [J B PIE].
