Presidential Fun Fact of the Day

Some tidbits from Millard Fillmore's inauguration:

1. Fillmore became president upon the death of Zachary Taylor.

2. He was sworn in before a joint meeting of the House and Senate.

3. Like Tyler before him, Fillmore sent a message to Congress a few days after taking the Oath. This was in lieu of an inaugural address.
