Chester A. Arthur

September 19, 1881-March 4, 1885

Chester A. Arthur was born in Fairfield, Vermont, in 1829. He graduated at Union College in 1848, was a teacher, was admitted to the bar, and went to law school in New York City. He was New Yorks General Quartermaster early in the Civil War. During the year of 1878, President Hayes attempted to tell the Customs House, ousted Arthur. Arthur kept the secret that he was suffering a fatal kidney disease since a year after he succeeded to becoming president. He continued to run for president in 1884 so he didn't appear defeated, he feared to be beat. He was not voted again, and died in 1886.
