Monroe's Vice President is known for maybe two things.  A park in the East Village of New York City, and that he was a drunk.  Yet, as we discuss with Tim Pearson, the author of Second Fiddle, The Strange, Sick, Silly Sad and Soused Men We Elected Vice President, there's much more to Daniel D. Tompkins.  He was also a democratic superstar who defeated aristocrats, prepared New York's defense in the War of 1812, and ended slavery in New York.  Music from Lee Rosevere in this episode and Chris Novembrino
