The Answer

Congratulations to the respondents. I believe reader BO was the first to answer. The only President who died after renouncing his American citizenship was John Tyler. After failing to inspire a compromise movement to keep the South from seceding in 1861, Tyler endorsed the Confederate cause and became a member of the Confederate House of Representatives. He died in 1862 and was buried in Richmond, Virginia near the tomb of James Monroe.
