This wonderful Millard Fillmore Authentic signature from “A Universal History” is compiled from Illustrations with maps, cuts, notes. It was signed on December 1st, 1862.
Millard Fillmore was the 13th president of the United States (1850–1853). A former U.S. representative from New York, Fillmore was elected the nation’s 12th vice president in 1848. He was instrumental in the passing of the Compromise of 1850, a bargain that led to a brief truce in the battle over slavery. He failed to win the Whig nomination for president in 1852.
Fillmore was born into poverty in the Finger Lakes area of New York state—his parents were tenant farmers during his formative years. Though he had little formal schooling, he rose from poverty through diligent study and became a successful attorney.
