The inauguration of Millard Fillmore as the 13th President of the United States, was held on Wednesday, July 10, 1850, at the House chamber inside the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C., following the death of President Zachary Taylor the previous day. This inauguration – the second non-scheduled, extraordinary inauguration to ever take place – marked the commencement of the only term of Millard Fillmore (a partial term of 2 years, 237 days) as President.
During the inauguration, William Cranch, Chief Judge of the U.S. Circuit Court of the D.C., administered the presidential oath of office to Fillmore. Cranch had also administered the oath to John Tyler in 1841, when Tyler succeeded to the presidency upon William Henry Harrison's death. Fillmore was the last president from neither the Democratic or Republican parties.
