Franklin Pierce, the 14th president of the United States, served his term from 1853 to 1857, a critical period leading up to the American Civil War. His presidency was characterized by his attempts to maintain peace between the North and South amid growing tensions over slavery. Although his endeavors were well-intentioned, they often aggravated the discord, especially with the controversial Kansas-Nebraska Act. The 1997 White House Association’s ornament depicts the front lawn of the White House during Pierce’s presidency, reflecting the tranquility of the landscape that was starkly contrasted by the turmoil within the nation. Despite the turbulent times, Pierce’s administration saw the expansion of the White House grounds and the establishment of the first permanent White House greenhouse, capturing a sense of enduring grace in the face of national unrest.
