    Franklin Pierce:

    Pierce was born on November 23, 1804 in Hillsborough, New Hampshire. His father was politically active having first fought in the Revolutionary War and then served in various offices in New Hampshire including being Governor of the State. Pierce went to a local school and two academies before attending Bowdoin College in Maine. He studied with both Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. He graduated fifth in his class and then studied law. He was admitted to the bar in 1827.

    He was nominated as the candidate for the Democratic Party in 1852. He ran against war hero Winfield Scott. The main issue was how to deal with slavery, appease or oppose the South. The Whigs were divided in support of Scott. Pierce won with 254 out of 296 electoral votes.

    DUDE! You have got to be kidding me? Are you serious. It took you more time to log into Yahoo. Type the question, go through the other steps and wait around for a response. There is no way you want an answer to this question. It can not be happening. Please don't contribute any more wasteful questions. Do a Yahoo or google or dogpile or whatever search engine in the world you want to use. And you'll get an answer.
