George Washington fought in the French/Indian War in which he was pretty beast, then went on to lead the American Revolutionary War, before becoming the first President of the first modern Democracy, despite never wanting to do any of these things. But he sucked it up and took it like a man.

John Adams skipped school to hunt and fish. Fukin savage. His last words are reported to be "Thomas Jefferson still lives." He was wrong, as President Jefferson died not 5 hours before Adams. It was the 4th of July, the 15th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.

Thomas Jefferson founded a university. He died on the 15th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.

James Madison waged war on the British Empire in the War of 1812. He didn't do well. The war could have been avoided if the letter that would have kept the peace had arrived 3 days earlier.

James Monroe had a big nose.

John Quincy Adams is President John Adams' son. Not many people know this. They are the first father/son pair to be presidents.

Andrew Jackson.

Martin Van Buren was practically Andrew Jackson's puppet.

William Henry Harrison died 30 days after his inauguration, and is the first President to be linked with the Curse of Tecumseh.

John Tyler was nicknamed "His Accidency" as he was the first to become president due to the death of his predecessor. He later became a representative of the Confederate House.

James Polk was president when land was disputed between Mexico and the US. He built a fort on the Rio Grande river, the side that Mexico claimed as its own, to provoke Mexico into attacking the American fort and giving the US a reason to declare war. His plan worked.

Zachary Taylor is the general of the men who were attacked by Mexico at the Rio Grande.

Millard Fillmore is one of the least known US presidents, and cannot be named by most Americans who are not at least avid US historians.

Franklin Pierce is probably the least known US president of all time. Even his final words are unknown. He didn't swear himself of office, but affirmed it. He used a law book instead of a Bible.

James Buchanan is the only US president to never be married.

Abraham Lincoln fought and won the American Civil War. Ironically, he never wanted to abolish slavery, which was the main reason the southern states had seceded (don't try to argue this, it's in their notifications of secession). If the South hadn't jumped the gun there might not have been a bloodiest American war to talk about.

Andrew Johnson was drunk during his inauguration. He is the first US president to be successfully impeached.

Ulysses S. Grant got a $20 speeding ticket riding a horse. His last word was "Water."

Rutherford Hayes won the election by just one vote. He banned alcohol from the White House.

James A. Garfield was ambidextrous. He was assassinated and is allegedly the second victim of Tecumseh's Curse.

Chester Arthur was a sharp-dressed man.

Grover Cleveland served for two terms, but not back to back. He married the girl he was a legal guardian to.

The next 22 will be added later. Stay edgy and have a nice time.

Barack Obama is singlehandedly responsible for the deaths of over 100,000 people (including American citizens) since 2007. He's the only president elected (to date) that openly hates America but gets away with it because of the free stuff he promises ignorant Millennials.

Benjamin Harrison was president when the White House had electricity installed. Ironically, he was afraid electricity and would not touch the light switches.

William McKinley, despite not doing much, had a mountain named after him (President Obama renamed it) and was the first to use the telephone to campaign. He was the fifth victim of Tecumseh's Curse.

Theodore Roosevelt.

Taft is the only president to swear in later presidents. After his terms were done he became Chief Justice on the Supreme Court.

Woodrow Wilson is the highest educated president in US history, with a Ph.D. in political science and History.

Warren Harding bet all the fine china in the White House in a round of poker. He lost. He is the sixth apparent victim of Tecumseh's Curse.

Calvin Coolidge always ate breakfast in bed, as vaseline was rubbed on his head.

Herbert Hoover spoke fluent Chinese.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt is the only president to have three terms. He dug the US out of Depression, led the US through WWII, and had a "story by" movie credit. He is the seventh alleged victim of Tecumseh's Curse.

The "S" in Harry S. Truman's name doesn't stand for anything. He added it.

Dwight D. Eisenhower had an infected knee injury in high school that was life threatening, according to doctors. They recommended he had an amputation, but Eisenhower refused, saying that he wouldn't be able to play sports. He then made a miraculous recovery.

John F. Kennedy won his presidency in the year when television was used to catch debates, rather than radios. Many say that the way he looked compared to his opponent is the reason he won.

Lyndon B. Johnson aws shameless, and told people to follow him into the bathroom to continue a conversation while he relieved himself.

Richard Nixon used money he won in poker games to fund his campaign.

Gerald Ford was a fashion model and appeared on Cosmopolitan.

Jimmy Carter has beaten Trump to the punch in barring entire Muslim nationalities from entering the US, when he cut off ties with Iran and threw out Iranian delegates during the Hostage Crisis. He also had a peanut farm.

Ronald Reagan was a stand-up comedian in Vegas. He was shot, but didn't die.

George Bush Sr. was a better athlete than he was a politician, people say.

Bill Clinton won two Grammy's and was blown by at least two women.

George W. Bush was reading a book to a grade school classroom when the Twin Towers were attacked. He was a cheerleader in high school.

Barack Obama plays basketball. He also thanks himself when bad things happen.

Interesting note on George Washington about one of the battles he fought in with the British during the French and Indian war. It was recorded that he was leading a small force that got ambushed by a Indian war party. During the ambush George was 'hit by multiple musket shots by more than two Indians. I say 'hit' because all of their shots made holes all over his coat but not holes in him. Needless to say they were rather shocked. I forgot where I read that but I found it on a couple of sources.
