Today in American History…Anna Harrison is born ðŸ‡ºðŸ‡¸

Today in American history…Anna Harrison was born on July 25, 1775. She was only First Lady for a very short time (one month) due to her husband President William Henry Harrison’s untimely death soon after his inauguration in 1841. She sadly holds the record of ones shortest time as First Lady. She was also the oldest First Lady upon her husbands election (she was 65 years old. The other day we celebrated the youngest – Frances Cleveland who was 21). Mrs Harrison is also the very last First Lady born in “British America.”
