Warren G Harding was born November 2, 1865, on a farm in Ohio. He graduated from Ohio Central College in 1883 and worked as a reporter until 1884.
He became the 29th president of the United States after winning what was at the time the greatest landslide in American history in 1920. He won 60% of the popular vote and won the Electoral College 404-127. He was a Republican who wanted less government in business and more business in government. But his term was full of scandal because of corrupt cabinet members. Still, he did manage some great accomplishments before his early death while still in office.

During that tour, the president is believed to have suffered a heart attack on August 2 and died at a San Francisco, CA hospital. Millions of people across the country gathered along the railroad tracks as Harding’s body was returned to Washington D.C. His home in Marion, OH later became a National Historic Landmark, which is open to the public.
