Harrison was a man of quite the pedigree. Even beyond his own lifetime, this pedigree would produce a number of influential historical figures. William Henry Harrison was born in a time when America was just finding its footing as a federal power. Its duties on the global level were still rather unclear, though. Harrison was unable to leave an incredible impact on the proper procedure of the federal government, but that doesn’t mean he was insignificant to the history of the U.S. Harrison spent much of his life as a soldier of great renown.
His leadership during a number of early military campaigns earned him great fame around the entire nation. When he wished to enter the field of politics, he got involved in a turbulent political structure that was attempting to settle into orthodoxy. Due in no small part to Harrison’s predecessors, America was in a period flux politically speaking. Realizing this, Harrison was hoping to settle down that flux using his own authority.
