Stephen Grover Cleveland (March 18, 1837 June 24, 1908) was the 22nd (1885 1889) and 24th (1893 1897) President of the United States, and the only President to serve two non-consecutive terms. He was the only Democrat elected to the presidency in the era of Republican political domination between the American Civil War and the election of Woodrow Wilson in 1912 (Andrew Johnson is considered a Democrat, although he was technically elected under the National Union Party ticket, not the Democratic one).
