The Early Republic’s Beautiful People

Two of them, apparently, were John Tyler’s wives (HT to @kevindmccann).

Tyler wasn’t a bad-looking guy, but one 2007 report had two Early Republic presidents in the top five “hottest” U.S. presidents: Thomas Jefferson and Franklin Pierce. Obama might have knocked one of them out of the top five by now, but even one Early Republic representative leaves the period sitting pretty.

No pun intended, of course.
