Let's Celebrate Our Leaders!

In honor of Presidents' Day, here are some little-known facts about the American presidents.

1. Nine Presidents never attended college: Washington, Jackson, Van Buren, Taylor, Fillmore, Lincoln, A. Johnson, Cleveland, and Truman.
2. The oldest elected president was Reagan (age 69); the youngest was Kennedy (age 43).
3. The tallest president was Lincoln at 6'4"; at 5'4", Madison was the shortest.
4. Presidents Adams, Jefferson, and Monroe all died on the 4th of July; Coolidge was born on that day.

And if that's not enough brain food for one day,
