Nine times over the course of 130 + years in American History, a vice president has become president of the United States. Assassination, premature death and a resignation have elevated 9 men to the presidency starting in 1841 and ending in 1974. This course will detail how nine men, neither the voters' nor their party's choice, dealt with their power and how it changed history , for better or worse. Each week, two to three accidental presidents will be discussed and evaluated by students and the teacher.
