Elected to Congress at age 29, Franklin Pierce was a Senator at 33.
Pierce’s leg was crushed at the Battle of Churubusco.
Franklin Pierce ran for President against General Winfield Scott, whom he had served under during the War.
Before he died, Franklin Pierce was baptized in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Concord.
