Stephen Grover Cleveland (March 18, 1837 – June 24, 1908)

Grover Cleveland was the 22nd and 24th President of the United States  
and is the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms in office 
(1885-1889 and 1893-1897) and is therefore the only individual to 
be counted twice in the numbering of presidents.

Grover Cleveland was the only Democrat elected to the presidency
in the era of Republican political domination that lasted from 1861
to 1913.
