Topic - William Henry Harrison
A portrait of former President William Henry Harrison painted just before his death is now being displayed at the home where he lived as Indiana's territorial governor.
Public figures have little control over how they are remembered. Herbert Hoover did not expect to be forever linked to the Great Depression. Richard Nixon never expected to be known as the only president to resign his office.
Arriving on horseback, having ridden from his rooming house in a steady rain with neither hat nor coat, Harrison proceeded to speak for more than two hours.
Harrison wrote on one occasion, "I wish I could say that the Indians were treated with justice and propriety ... but it is very rare that they obtain any satisfaction for the most unprovoked wrongs."
