#15 James Buchanan (1857-1861)

The fifteenth president of the United States: James Buchanan.

Buchanan was the president leading up to the civil war.  He made a few lackluster attempts to prevent the south from succeeding from the union that were ultimately ineffective.

Buchanan was also the only US president to remain a bachelor, and his niece acted as hostess in the White House.
