Post Presidency

Did Pierce hold any political office after leaving the presidency?

No, Pierce returned to Concord, New Hampshire, with his wife, Jane. They traveled overseas but Jane could not shake her bouts with depression, which increased after the tragic death of their third son, “Bennie.” She died in 1863. Pierce died several years later in October 1869.
