This site commemorates the life of Franklin Pierce (1804-1869), the 14th President of the United States of America. It is the result of historical and cultural institutions throughout New Hampshire working together to coordinate exhibits, lectures, and other activities to commemorate the Granite States only U.S. President.

While Franklin Pierces memory is far from forgotten, his life is often overlooked or misunderstood. Pierce was a compelling and often contradictory man. He has been described a powerful orator, a faithful friend and a master politician. He is also described as a defender of slavery, a partisan politician, and an ineffective president.

Franklin Pierce's enigmatic Presidency, his love of history, and his passion for New Hampshire are all well documented. Growing up with his nation, the personal story of Pierce's life mirrors the triumph and tragedy of 19th century America. Now, thanks to this effort, we have groundbreaking new research into who Pierce was, and how he continues to impact our nation.

I hope that this resource provides the information, links, and contacts to help to better understand Franklin Pierce, his times, and the history of America. As he departed Concord, NH, to fight in the Mexican War, Pierce said, "I will come back with honor, or I will not come back at all."
