James Buchanan Jr.(April
23, 1791 – June 1, 1868) was the 15th president of the United States
(1857–1861), serving prior to the American Civil War. A member of the
Democratic Party, he served as the United States Secretary of State and
in both houses of Congress before becoming president.
The argument for King's homosexuality has been put forward by
biographer Jean Baker, supported by Shelley Ross, James W. Loewen, and
Robert P. Watson, and focuses essentially on his close and intimate relationship with President James Buchanan.
The two men lived together for 13 years from 1840 until King's death in
1853. Buchanan referred to the relationship as a "communion", and the
two often attended official functions together. Contemporaries also
noted and commented upon the unusual closeness. Andrew Jackson mockingly
called them "Miss Nancy" and "Aunt Fancy" (the former being a
19th-century euphemism for an effeminate man), while Aaron V. Brown
referred to King as Buchanan's "better half". However, Lewis Saum, has
argued that "…Customs and expressions were different in the mid-1800s
than they are today... "Miss Nancy" was "a fairly common designation for
people who wore clean clothes and had good manners"; and noted that
Aaron Brown was a political enemy of King.
