DYK James Buchanan, according to some historians, he was also gay. His niece and ward Harriet Lane (an orphan) filled the position of “first lady” during his presidency. His constant companion was William Rufus King.
So noticeable, that Andrew Jackson referred to them as "Miss Nancy" and
"Aunt Fancy". Not only is he regarded as the first gay U.S. president, he
ranks as one of our worst. He did nothing to stop the succession of the
states, under his watch. He, basically, passed the problem to the next
president, who, was Abraham Lincoln.
