威廉亨利哈里森是美國第九任總統,於68歲那年當選,是雷根於1981年、69歲當選總統之前、就任時年紀最長的總統,哈里森是第一位於任內過世的總統,任期僅31天。

身為現今印第安那州和伊利諾斯州的軍官和州長,他曾與印地安人對戰並訂定協定,幫助白種人西進定居之路更為順暢。他戰勝印地安人的功績讓他成為白種美國人崇拜的英雄。

哈里森的父親班傑明哈里森(Benjamin Harrison)參與了獨立宣言的簽署,威廉亨利哈里森的孫子,班傑明·哈里森,則是美國第23任總統。

William Henry Harrison was the ninth U.S. president and, at 68, was the oldest to be inaugurated until Ronald Reagan in 1981 was sworn in at the age of 69. Harrison was the first president to die in office -- only 31 days after his inauguration.

As an Army officer and governor of the territory that is now Indiana and Illinois, he fought Indians and made harsh treaties with them, clearing the way for more westward settlement by whites. His military victories against Indians made him a hero to white Americans.

Harrison's father, Benjamin Harrison, signed the Declaration of Independence. William Henry Harrison's grandson, also named Benjamin Harrison, became the 23rd president.
