Franklin Pierce’s story is a pretty depressing one. He is thought of as one of the worst Presidents in US history for his failure to curb the civil war. His family life was tragic. His party expelled him after his first term as President, and he was not renominated. He was probably an alcoholic and died when his liver finally failed him. For all of these reasons and more, there is not a large amount of Pierce memorabilia available.
