Franklin Pierce was President of the United States during the mid 19th century, prior to Reconstruction. He was a member of the famous political Pierce family. As President, he gained some notoriety when he annexed the country of Cuba. The Pierce Bedroom in the White House was named for him. Notes His first name "Franklin" was never mentioned on the series and is taken from real life. Like Josiah Bartlet, Pierce came from New Hampshire and was a US Representative from that state. ↑ "All right. Pierce is...?
