Grover Cleveland began his unlikely rise to the presidency as the Mayor of Buffalo. Within two years of taking office, he would be nominated for the governorship of New York. He would gain national notoriety for fighting political corruption, specifically Tammany Hall in New York City. President Cleveland would go on to serve the only nonconsecutive presidential terms in history, serving from 1885-1889, then again from 1893-1897. After leaving office, the former president indulged his lifelong passion for sports and writing.
