Benjamin Harrison was President of the United States during the late 19th century.

He was said to be born in a log cabin. In 2001, it was believed by Sam Seaborn that remnants of this log cabin were present in the White House Mural Room. This was an apparant mix-up between Benjamin Harrison, who was born in a standard farmer's home, and his paternal grandfather, President William Henry Harrison, whose 1840 campaign revolved around his simple, log cabin lifestyle and the famous campaign slogan "Tippecanoe and Tyler, Too." [1]

As a Senator, Harrison was banned from the Republican Cloakroom of the Capitol Building by a Senate Resolution for lobbying too much.[2]

In May 2005, Toby Ziegler thought that Harrison might have been the first President to throw out the first pitch in a baseball game, but he was mistaken.[3]
