About (Profile/Biography):

Grover Cleveland, a well known President of the United States, was born in Caldwell. Grover Cleveland served as the 22nd and 24th U.S. president between 1885 to 1889 but also from 1893 to 1897, respectively. He was the only President to hold office for two terms that weren't consecutive, and the only Democrat to hold the office during the 1861–1933 period of Republican political dominance.

Grover Cleveland Presidency:

Grover practiced law after receiving his legal degree before getting interested in politics. Before vying for the presidency in 1884, he was elected as the governor of Buffalo, N.Y. and later as the governor of that state.

Cleveland's priorities as president were lowering government spending, vetoing several bills that would have raised spending, and carrying out a number of civil service overhaul initiatives. 

Cleveland sought reelection in 1888 but lost to Benjamin Harrison. He did, however, run for president again in 1892 and win, making him the first leader to hold office for a non-consecutive period of time. 

Cleveland concentrated on lowering the federal debt during his second election and rejected several proposals that would have boosted government expenditure.

Grover Cleveland Contibutions:

Grover also backed the global standard, which contributed to the stabilization of the American economy. Cleveland was a staunch supporter of free trade and opposed government corruption.

In addition to his record of integrity and independence as a politician, Cleveland is also renowned for the achievements he made during his two- periods as U.S. president.

Grover Cleveland Unknown Facts:

Cleveland is the first president to have held office while being both a bachelors and a widower. During his first tenure in office, he married his ward Frances Folsom.
