What was the last name of the U.S. president whose first name was Franklin?
- Pierce:Franklin Pierce was the 14th president of the United States serving from 1853 to 1857. He and his running mate William R. King easily defeated the Whig Party ticket of Winfield Scott and William A. Graham in the 1852 presidential election. Pierce was a northern Democrat who believed that the abolitionist movement was a fundamental threat to the unity of the nation. As president, he signed the Kansas-Nebraska Act, prompting a bloody conflict over Kansas’ slavery status. Pierce’s handling of the affair prompted his democratic supporters to abandon him during the 1856 presidential election, in favor of his successor, James Buchanan.
