Twenty-second (and Twenty-fourth) President: Grover Cleveland - 4 comments



As every schoolchild knows, Grover Cleveland is our only President to have served two non-consecutive terms in office. He was defeated in 1888 by Benjamin Harrison, and then returned in 1892 to oust Harrison from office. Cleveland's early career included being the Sheriff of Erie County, the Mayor of Buffalo, and the Governor of New York.

Little-known fact (at least to us po' folks): Grover Cleveland used to be on the One Thousand Dollar Bill.
