Geocache Description:

#17 in the VPS.

Schuyler Colfax, Jr., had been Speaker of the House before serving under President Grant.  He is one of only two Americans to have served as both Speaker and as Vice-President.  In 1854 Colfax was initiated as a member of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity at DePauw University without ever having attended that or any other university.  After becoming involved in a scandal involving a railroad and a construction company, he was not renominated to run as vice-president with Grant.

This cache should be fairly easy.  Be safe.  Have fun!
