MISCELLANIA
Pierce, a dark horse nominee, was a good
politician who had never lost an election. A
master at getting along with people, he was
the only President in history to serve a com-
plete term without making a single change in
his cabinet appointments.
Outrages over slavery issues led to the for-
mation of a new Republican Party at this
time.
