Grover Cleveland

(Stephen Grover Cleveland)


Grover Cleveland was both the 22d and 24th President of the United States, noted for his honesty and integrity. He was born at Caldwell, New Jersey, March 18, 1837. He was admitted to the bar in 1859, and settled in Buffalo, New York. In 1884 he became the Democratic candidate for President of the United States, and was elected over James G. Blain in 1885. His first term was marred by squabbling within his own party. When he was elected again in 1893, a series of financial disasters and labor strikes caused more trouble. He declined to run a third time, despite requests from the Democratic party, and retired to private life. He died in 1908.
