In 1837, Martin Van Buren became the eighth president of the United States. It was a difficult time to come into power. The Panic of 1837 had left the country suffering from their first economic depression. Van Buren worked hard to improve the economy throughout his presidency, finally establishing the U.S. Treasury. During his political career, he was nicknamed the Little Magician , and many consider him the father of wheeling and dealing.
