. Harrison was the ninth President of the United States. He was born in Charles County, Virginia, on February 9, 1773, son of one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. After a successful military career in the War of 1812, Harrison made his home at North Bend just west of Cincinnati. He became the first president to die in office when he succumbed to pneumonia in April 1841, just a few weeks after his inauguration.
