  • Note: President John Tyler was the only president not honored by the US government at the time of his death. This is because he died as a Confederate Congressman in 1862. He is also the only president elected to office by a foreign government and because he was buried draped in the confederate flag he is the only president not buried with an American flag over his coffin.
