Wow. We've been dreading doing this episode. The Pierce administration was not a fun one, and Jane was not a terribly happy person.

Margaret Taylor wasn't a big fan of the idea of her husband continuing on in public service. Rumor has it she even prayed that he would lose the election! That's just part of the reason why their daughter stepped in to take on the role. _______________________________ Support us on Patreon!

In another crazy turn of events, a President loses his wife and then has another woman act as First Lady! This one has a twist though - he has a total of three acting First Ladies (and some may even say 4). _______________________________ Support us on Patreon!

For as rough of a guy as Andy Jack was, it seems like he really cared about his wife, Rachel. She had a hard life, and a tragic end. We're going to talk about her, as well as the ladies who took on the mantle of First Lady during Andy Jack's Presidency. _______________________________ Support us on Patreon!

Ever think to yourself, "I'd really like to hear an episode all about how two women married their third cousins and were also closely related to the President of the United States?" We've got just the episode for you! Martha and Martha were never quite First Ladies of the United States, but we figure they get an honorable mention since one was the wife of a President and the other acted as a First Lady at times. _______________________________ Support us on Patreon!

Breckinridge lead a pretty interesting life both before AND after his stint as Vice President.

It's time to play a little game we like to call "Slap your high school history teacher!" because we can pretty much bet they didn't teach you about John C. Breckenridge.
