The fact that no president has been an only child is interesting.  Wonder if that made them better leaders?  Thanks for the history lesson

I've been reading American History and it is so amazing how much we weren't taught in school. Thanks for these little tid bits.

Michael, thank you, I love it! Very interesting facts, I did know Lincoln was the tallest, but didn't know about the S in Truman's name. So it was just there for fun?

Those are interesting facts.  I am an only child and never realized no President was ever an only child.  Guess we're just not Presidential material.  HaHa
