Text on back of card

Hillsboro—Home of Franklin Pierce. Franklin Pierce, fourteenth President of the United States, was born at Hillsboro, N.H., on Nov. 23rd, 1804. He was graduated from Bowdoin College in 1824, and in 1834, married Jane Means Appleton. They both preferred the quiet of their New England home to the fashionable life at Washington, and were glad when they could return to Hillsboro at the expiration of Pierce's term of office in 1857. Later they moved to Concord, where they passed the remainder of their days in comfort and ease. Pierce died on Oct. 8th, 1869, six years after the death of his wife. Tuck's Post Card; Oilette
