US Presidents

Thomas Jefferson's father was one of the surveyors who laid out the Virginia/North Carolina border.

President Ulysses S. Grant was once arrested during his term of office. He was convicted of exceeding the Washington speed limit on his horse and was fined $20.

John Adams died on July 4, 1826, the same day friend as his political rival and friend Thomas Jefferson. His last words are reported to have been, "Thomas Jefferson still survives."

Though his wife Martha had four children by a previous marriage, George Washington left no direct descendant. He never sired a child to continue his family line.

President William H. Taft was once offered a contract to pitch for the Cincinnati Reds.

John Adams was central to the Revolution and to the creation of the Declaration of Independence and the government under the Constitution.

President William Howard Taft was a seventh cousin twice removed of Richard M. Nixon, and was a distant relative of Ralph Waldo Emerson.

John Adams was the first president to have a son become president. His wife, Abigail Smith, was very influential and known as an engaging conversationalist and a wonderful writer of letters

US Presidents

John Adams was the first president to live in the White House then called the Executive Mansion.

Three U.S. presidents have been the sons of clergymen: Chester Arthur, Grover Cleveland, and Woodrow Wilson.

Three Whigs have served as president of the United States: William Henry Harrison, Zachary Taylor, and Millard Fillmore.

President William Howard Taft, weighing 325 pounds at the time, had a special bathtub installed at the White House which was big enough to hold four men.

To enforce integration, Dwight Eisenhower ordered the U.S. National Guard to escort students into the Little Rock High School in Little Rock, Arkansas.

President William McKinley always wore a red carnation in his lapel for good luck.

Two towns in Vermont claim to be President Chester A. Arthur's birthplace, but recent research supports his opponents' charges that he was born in Canada, and therefore, was not eligible to be president under the U.S. Constitution.

President William McKinley had a pet parrot that he named "Washington Post

US Presidents

U.S. President Bill Clinton is allergic to dust, mold, pollen, cats, Christmas trees, and dairy products.

President William Taft kept a cow on the White House lawn to supply him with fresh milk. He was the last president to do so.

U.S. President George Washington, was the first person to breed roses in the U.S.. Washington laid out his own garden at Mt. Vernon and filled it with his own selections of roses. He named one of his varieties after his mother and it is still being grown today.

President Woodrow Wilson, known as "Tommy Wilson" to his classmates at Davidson College in North Carolina, was fined 20 cents in 1873 for "improper conduct in the hall".

Ulysses S. Grant apologized upon leaving the White House for errors of judgment, not for errors of intent. He was known for being personally honest but surrounded by dishonest people.

A graduate of West Point and the United States Military Academy, Dwight Eisenhower later became the President of Columbia University.

A rocking chair lover, Pres. Jimmy Carter brought five of his Jumbos, a rocker designed by Thomas Brumby in 1875, to the White House.

Abraham Lincoln considered his Gettysburg Address "a flat failure."

Abraham Lincoln offered this timeless, usually unheeded, piece of advice to lawyers: "Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbor to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker, the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough."

Abraham Lincoln paid $2,600 for a string of seed pearls and matching earrings purchased from Tiffany's for his wife, Mary.

Abraham Lincoln received his license to practice law on September 9, 1836.

Abraham Lincoln was granted a patent for his idea to lift vessels more easily over shoals by inflating air chambers near the water line. He was issued patent #6,469 for "A Device for Buoying Vessels over Shoals" on May 22, 1849. While Lincoln's invention never got past the patent stage, the model he carved from wood for his patent application is in the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of American History.

Warren G. Harding was considered personally popular, but allowed his cabinet to take over his presidential term.
