Millard Fillmore Background:
He is best remembered for the debates over the Compromise of 1850, which called for the admission of California as a “free state” and for the abolition of slavery in Washington, DC. Fillmore favored these measures.
Notable quote: “An honorable defeat is better than a dishonorable victory.” “The man who can look upon a crisis without being willing to offer himself upon the altar of the country is not for public trust.”
