Marin Von Buren was born in december 5th 1782 in Kindehook and died in july 24th 1882 in the state of New York.
Van Buren was son of a tavernkeeper and a farmer. He was a very important man for the United State of America. He firstly was the tenth Secretary of State (1829-1831), then the eight Vice President (1833-1837) and finally the eight President of the United State of America (1837-1841).Van Buren has not British or Scot Irish descents : he was Dutch and his first language was also not English but Ducth.
Van Buren started to be in politics since he was 17 years old. He always was a democrat .
When he became president he had to deal with the "Panic of 1837", a financial crisis followed by five years of economic depression. Van Buren advocate lower tariffs and free trade to fix the situation.
In the case of the famous boat Amistad, Van Buren asked to the Spanish government to return the kidnapped slaves.
He voted against the admission of Missouri as a slave state and was nominated to be president of the Free Soil Party , an anti-slavery political party. So, he was clearly an abolitionist.
His entire political life was based on the struggle against economic crisis and slavery. One of his most well-known adversary was John Calhoun, who was candidate for the presidential election and in favor of slavery. About the economic aspect of his political lif, Martin Van Buren thought that the crisis was due to a "recklessness in business and overexpansion of credits". So he fought for the creation of an independent treasury system to deal with the government transactions and he was opposed to the creation of a new Bank of the United State.
Martin Van Buren was finally defeated by the Whigs in 1840 for reelection, and was not elected to be president of the Free Oil Party in 1848.

As President, Coolidge demonstrated his determination to preserve the old moral and economic precepts amid the material prosperity which many Americans were enjoying. He refused to use Federal economic power to check the growing boom or to ameliorate the depressed condition of agriculture and certain industries

The House of the Rising Sun is an american folk song whose origin is unknown. Some people think that the song was written by a couple from Kentucky (Georgia Turner and Bert Martin).
This song is one of the most covered since the XXth century. The meaning of the lyrics is submit to a controversy because the expression "Rising Sun" was commonly used like a euphemism to talk about brothel. But according to some people, "the Rising Sun" was a prison for women in New Orleans. That would probably explain the expression "ball and chain" at the end of the song.
When you search "the house of the rising sun lyrics" in google, the first answer will be the version of the band The Animal, released in 1964. Those lyrics are quite correct copairing to the originals except for one detail :
"There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God, I know I'm one "
In fact in the original version, the song is the testimony of a young woman. But many bands like Muse (2010) or The Walls of Jericho (2008) changed the lyrics in a lot of different ways.
My three favorite covers are the version of Nina Simone(1962):
the version of Lauren O'Connel (2013):
and the version of the White Buffalo (2011):
