In six informative chapters, author James Deem uncovers the brief history of Zachary Taylor's presidency. Perhaps Taylor's greatest accomplishment in office was the Clayton-Bulwer Treaty, which prevented Great Britain from expanding its interests in Central America. This treaty enabled future president Theodore Roosevelt to construct the Panama Canal. Unfortunately, Taylor died after completing only sixteen months of his term.
