FC: Mitch Maher Franklin Pierce Government

2: Franklin Pierce was the 14 president of the United States. He was in probably one of the hardest times to be president because of the slavery factor that was still being taken place. Socially, Franklin had to hold the country together for the sake of the Government and for the people. He was having a terrible time of keeping the country together because of slavery. Socially he wanted to be on the people's side and make the right decision on slavery by keeping the nation together.

3: Back in New Hampshire, Pierce became the leader of the state's Democratic Party. As the presidential election of 1852 came near, the Democratic Party sought a candidate who was a pro-slavery Northerner—to attract voters on both sides of the slavery issue. Economically Pierce tried to expand the country to hold the country together. He tried by dispatching agents to buy Alaska, Cuba, Northern Mexico, a Naval base in Santo Domingo, and to secure the annexation of Hawaii. The President served from 1837-1842.

4: Pierce in office, Pierce was confronted of Kansas' and Nebraska's slavery situation. He agreed to sign the Kansas-Nebraska Act in 1854. This turned Kansas into a battleground for the country's situation due to slavery. Because of how Pierce handled the situation, he caused his democratic supporters to abandon him during the 1856 presidential election, in favor of his successor, James Buchanan.

6: The long-term effects of Pierce's actions probably ended I'd say after the Civil War. When Pierce supported slavery, this only add more problems that would end in the Civil War. Much of the blame for that war would be pointed at him and he was blamed very harsh. He had left New Hampshire a hero in 1853. He returned in silence. Franklin Pierce died at Concord on October 8, 1869, five years after his wife, Jane.
