    Zachary Taylor (Nov. 24, 1784-July 9, 1850) was the 12th president of the United States. A career officer in the United States Army, he led troops in the War of 1812, the Black Hawk War of 1832, and the Second Seminole War during which he received the nickname "Old Rough and Ready." Taylor became a national hero after victories in the Mexican War and was nominated the Whig Party's reluctant presidential candidate in 1848. Taylor served as president only eighteen months before dying suddenly in July, 1850.

    Taylor was the only person to become president who spent a significant amount of his life in Louisiana. He established Fort Jesup near Natchitoches and was the commanding officer at Fort Robertson in Baton Rouge. He engaged in land speculation in north Louisiana and purchased a plantation in the Felicianas but was an absentee landowner. While stationed at Baton Rouge, Taylor purchased a plantation near the fort and moved his family there. The plantation was located just south of the Pentagon Barracks in what is now downtown Baton Rouge. Taylor was living here when he received word that he had been elected president.
