Andy Carlisle's William Henry Harrison Web Page

Andy Carlisle's William Henry Harrison Web Page. The first President Harrison served only a little more than a month before dying. Not surprisingly, there is not a ton of material online about him.

Any Carlisle has a site up at Homestaed.com that has some basic information. The facts appear to be from an old copy of The Book of Presidents.

From the site:

He was the only president who had ten children.
He was the only president who studied medicine.
He was the first president who was a professional soldier.
He was the only president who served as territorial governor.
He was the only president who served as minister of Colombia.

Before I go through your archives, I was wondering if you have reviewed any other webpages on the individuals?

I am currently working on a website (not up yet) and would rather link to pages on the Presidents, than make my own. It is just too time consuming!

I meant to say personal webpages on the individual Presidents

I am not quit sure what you mean. Something like http://www.usa-presidents.info/? How about http://www.libraryreference.org/index.php?c=Society/History/By_Region/North_America/United_States/Presidents?

I mean pages like Andy Carlisle's page on WHH. I want pages that deal with one president instead of all of them.

Reasoning: A person focusing on one single president usually indicates a great deal of interest in that President. That normally translates into a page that has more than just the basic information that can be found almost anywhere online.

I would rather have 42 different links to more interesting sites than a couple of links that has the basic information on all of them.

Try the Open Directory Project at http://www.dmoz.org/Society/History/By_Region/North_America/United_States/Presidents/. There are over 1200 sites listed by President. This will help you find more personal and unique sites on each President.
