On this day in 1837, 22nd (and 24th) President Grover Cleveland was born in Caldwell, New Jersey. Cleveland is the only president to have served for two separate terms. His time in office was characterized by political reform, hot debates over tariffs and the gold standard, and the greatest economic depression yet seen in the nation’s history.

Did you know? Cleveland was not a man of extravagant tastes. Writing to a friend, he noted “I must go to dinner, but I wish it was to eat a pickled herring a Swiss cheese and a chop at Louis’ instead of the French stuff I shall find.”

Cleveland, Ohio is NOT named after the president, but his distant relative from Connecticut, General Moses Cleaveland, who surveyed the land.
