A Princeton tiger was President of the US Second Bank?

Yep, his name was Nicholas Biddle AND he graduated as valedictorian when he was only 15 yrs old!


He was a total smartypants and had deep family connections to folks like Ben Franklin, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and more …… all that still didn’t help him when Andrew Jackson tried to ruin his career …..

(Here is President Jackson as he tries to slay the many-headed monster that symbolizes the revived Second Bank …. Nicholas Biddle is in the middle, in the top hat.)

Check out his mansion, located less than an hour from Princeton!
