Which U.S. president once described Minnesota as ‘miserable and uninteresting’?

Zachary Taylor, president of the United States from 1849-50, was commander of Fort Snelling from May 24, 1828, to July 12, 1829. During that time, he wrote that the region was a “most miserable & uninteresting country” and an “out of the way part of the world.”
