Tucker “C-Gull” Sjoblad


In the heated times of agrarian revolt (during the mid 1800s), C-Gull was born in the log cabin he built himself. The young boy thrived.  His best friends were those he found in the woods around his rural Virginia home. Drinking from a stream running down from the highest peak he grew strong, sharp, and fast…boy was he fast.  His adult life began when he enlisted in the United States army.  He gradually rose through the ranks, and was stationed in Northwest Ohio to fight in the Great Indian Wars. There, C-Gull defeated the tribal forces at Prophetstown, next to the Wabash and Tippecanoe Rivers. C-Gull was hailed as a national hero and the battle became famous.  Later, when the illustrious C-Gull became a politician and ran for the presidency with John Tyler on the ticket, his slogan was “Tippecanoe and Tyler Too”.  C-Gull died of pneumonia weeks after his inauguration as the 9th president of the United States.  Legend states that he caught a cold because he was too stubborn to wear a coat on his inauguration day.  C-Gull served the shortest term of any United States president — only 30 days.  He will live forever in our hearts.
