Grover Cleveland came from a family of nine children. He never went to college and studied on his own to become a lawyer. Cleveland was a very honest man and hard worker who rose from being an attorney in Buffalo to the presidency in three years. He was known for being a strong leader who didn't put up with any nonsense. As president, he vetoed more than 300 bills. He was the only person to get married while in the White House, and the only president to leave the White House and return for a second term four years later.
