Buffalo’s own Millard Fillmore is buried in Forest Lawn cemetery, his grave very simply marked.
Those who loved him, appreciated his contributions to Buffalo’s formation as a city, and his involvement in the creation of dozens of institutions from UB to the SPCA to the History Museum… in death, they called him M.F.
There are also those who look upon his signing of the Fugitive Slave Act and his later lack of enthusiasm for the northern cause toward the end of the Civil War and call him M. F.
It’s nice that we can all agree about what to call Millard Fillmore on this, the 219th anniversary of his birthday.
I tend to agree with both interpretations. HB, MF.
