Hello, everyone. The coloring page on this post is of former U.S. President Zachary Taylor. Taylor was a much respected war hero, however he wasn't much of a politician. He wasn't a refined man, in any sense. He wore old tattered clothes and a floppy straw hat. It wasn't unusual back then to mistake him for a farmer. So, with this image I have included an illustration of an old farmer's hat.
Also, Taylor had an unusual death. On July 4th, 1850 Taylor was celebrating the holiday and the completion of the Washington Memorial amongst a large crowd in Washington D.C. Taylor and the crowd were treated to cherries and milk for the occasion. However, the hot July sun made those treats go bad. Taylor ended up gorging himself on bad cherries and bad milk. He died five days later, due to the ensuing sickness. So, to remember his strange death I have included an illustration of a cherry.
Of Coloring Pages, Fatherhood, and the Joys of Little Children
This web journal is the companion site to our main coloring page website ColoringPageKids.com. What started out as an experiment left to itself has evolved into a coloring page resource for the good children of the earth. In this blog, I take the luxury of commenting on the joys and laughs of fatherhood especially in the realm of rearing small children, and some how try to tie this in to Coloring Pages, which we update from time to time.
