James Buchanan

James Buchanan of Pennsylvania was the 15th President of the United States. Historians have judged Buchanan largely ineffective as president, accomplishing little while attempting to deal with the growing issues of states rights and slavery as the United States careened toward secession and the holocaust of the Civil War. A Democrat, Buchanan was in office from March 4, 1857, to March 4, 1861.
