Happy Birthday!

12th president (1849-1850),

Zachary Taylor

was born 11/24/1784
(d. July 9, 1850)

        We'll sing a song to suit the times,
        With voices bold and steady,
        And cheerily we'll tell in rhymes
        Of good old Rough and Ready.

        "Rough and Ready" a campaign song,
        Words by Alfred Wheeler, Tune: "Yankee Doodle"

He got to fame and prominence because:

        General Taylor gained the day
         Walk him along, John, Carry him along
        General Taylor gained the day
         Carry him to his burying ground

No, no, wait a minute. Actually:

        An' Zacharias Taylor ran away,
         Away Santiana!
        He ran away at Molley-Del-Rey.
         All across the plains of Mexico!

I think he was in the Air National Guard.
