Reasons why Benjamin Harrison was Forgettable...
- Federal spending reached one billion dollars for the first time during his term.
- The spending issue in part led to the defeat of the republicans in the 1890 midterm elections.
- Harrison was defeated by Cleveland in his bid for re-election in 1892 due to the growing unpopularity of the high tariff and high federal spending.
