    William Henry Harrison is interesting if for no other reason than that he was barely even president. But before we get into all of that, let's talk about the events leading up to his presidency!

    Join us as we discuss...

    • WHH's early life and subsequent education,
    • his military career under General "Mad Anthony" Wayne,
    • an un-sanctioned marriage,
    • the start of public service as a U.S. Congressman,
    • a position as the territorial governor of Indiana,
    • the first dealings and battles with Tecumseh at Tippecanoe,
    • an ongoing War of 1812,
    • and more!
