Episode 22 - Grandpa Tenth President

I kinda wish it wasn't John Tyler. Make it Van Buren or even Buchanan. Anybody except a former president turned traitor. We let this guy lead the country and he pays us back by joining the Confederacy? Hell with him.

But it's still astounding that he has living grandchildren. This man born in 1790 - before Washington was sworn in for his first term. If anything, it only serves to remind us just how short American history really is. Our post-colonial history has pretty much spanned only three generations of this family.
