Harrison served the shortest term of any American president: only 30 days, 11 hours and 30 minutes. He was born in Virginia in 1773, but spent most of his adult life in Ohio and Indiana. He is most famous for the campaign phrase, "Tippecanoe and Tyler Too." During his 1841 inaugural address, he caught pneumonia, and died a month later.
