In honor of President's Day, some Presidential trivia courtesy of the History Channel...I hope you enjoy!

 

*There have been 44 U.S. presidential administrations, but only 43 presidents--Grover Cleveland served two non-consecutive terms from 1885 to 1889 and 1893 to 1897.

*William Henry Harrison held the office for the shortest period of time--he died of pneumonia after about a month in office.

*The longest-serving president was Franklin D. Roosevelt, who died shortly into his fourth term in office. (The 22nd Amendment, ratified in 1951, limited to two the number of presidential terms one person could serve.)

*In addition to Harrison and Roosevelt, six other presidents have died while in office-- Taylor, Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, Harding and Kennedy. Of these, four were assassinated: Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley and Kennedy.

*At 43, John F. Kennedy was the youngest president elected to the office, but Theodore Roosevelt, who was sworn in at age 42 after the death of McKinley, was the youngest ever to hold the office.

*The oldest was Ronald Reagan, who began his first term at age 69.

Patty, This was fun reading.  Reagan showed us that age has no barriers to Presidency.  As for presidents who have died while in office, I know a LOT of people who would like to see that happen again today.  Aweful as it is ... it's true.  I'm not among those people, however I would like to see another face in the White House. It's certainly not worth dying for or wishing anyone dead. Just sayin'

Howdy and evening Patty

Patty my friend
, this sure is a mighty cool Presidential trivia blog post! This is not actual trivia. But I have actually gotten to meet in person and shack hands with 7 of our different Presidents, and four different First Ladies.

Have a good one

What president was fined $20 for riding his horse too fast in the nation's capitol?  (He did pay the fine and lauded the officer for doing his job!)

Marianna Kudos to him, I am not jumping out of an airplane!

Bud and Beth - I learned a lot too. Glad you liked it!!

R and A - Bruce knows Presidential trivia for both of us. LOL

Kathleen I am anti violence and speaking like that is not good for anyone. Regardless of who is in office we have the right to vote them out every 4 years.. No need to talk like that, right.

Adrian - loved it! Thanks for giving the answer unlike a friend of mine whose name I am not going to say (BRUCE).

Debra  ok, if I am still your favorite, then I have nothing to worry about.

Dale tell me how you did this! I want to meet the president so share your secret with me. :D

BRUCE!! ANSWERS PLEASE!

Patty,

Amazing what you can find with a quick internet search.

I know a few of the right answers but there was no penalty for guessing so that is what I mostly did.
