George Clinton was a soldier and statesman and considered one of the Founding Fathers. He was governor of New York and served as the fourth vice president under two presidents; only Clinton and John C. Calhoun served as vice president under two different presidents. He fought in the French and Indian War and during the Revolutionary War supplied food for the troops at Valley Forge. George Clinton initially opposed the adoption of the U.S. Constitution but withdrew his objections once the Bill of Rights was added. Clinton was the first vice president to die in office. Clinton is depicted in John Trumbull’s 1819 painting Declaration of Independence, even though he neither signed it nor was present when it was signed. The painting appears on the back of the two dollar bill.
