(1837 - 1908 )
Who was Grover Cleveland ?
Grover Cleveland was born in Caldwell, New Jersey, but raised in New York. Like many other Presidents, Cleveland was a lawyer before becoming President. His political career was launched at age 44, when he was elected Mayor of Buffalo, and shortly thereafter, Governor of New York.
Grover Cleveland was the first Democrat to be elected to office after the Civil War, the only President who married in the White House, the first President to have a child born while in office, and the only President to have served two inconsecutive terms. Cleveland took a firm stand in office, working hard and focused on improving the nation and government.
