"Fillmore (January 7, 1800-March 8, 1874) was the 13th President of the United States (1850-1853) and the last member of the Whig Party to hold the office of president. As Zachary Taylor’s Vice President, he assumed the presidency after Taylor’s death. Fillmore opposed the proposal to keep slavery out of the territories annexed during the Mexican-American War (to appease the South), and so supported the Compromise of 1850, which he signed, including the Fugitive Slave Act ('Bloodhound Law') which was part of the compromise."
