Campaign Portrait of Zachary Taylor

After his brilliant victories in the battles of the Mexican War, General Zachary Taylor was the overwhelming "People's Choice" for the twelfth president. He was nominated as the Whig party candidate for president at the Philadelphia convention in June, 1848. Unfortunately, President Taylor was only in office for sixteen months; he died in office on July 9, 1850. This portrait was drawn from life, engraved by Risso and published by Nathaniel Currier in 1848.
