It didn't all begin with George Washington as our first president but his term from 1789 to 1797 truly made a historical impact on the life and times of the United States of America. John Adams served from 1797 to 1801, Thomas Jefferson served from 1801 to 1809, and then James Madison served from 1809 to 1817. James Monroe followed after those men in his term from 1817 to 1825, followed by John Quincy Adams from 1825 to 1829, and Andrew Jackson who served America as the president from 1829 to 1837. Martin Van Buren became the president of the US after that from 1837 to 1841, William Henry Harrison served in 1841, and John Tyler served from 1841 to 1845. Those are only our first ten presidents out of 45!

James Garfield who served as president once said, "There are men and women who make the world better just by being the kind of people they are. They have the gift of kindness or courage or loyalty or integrity. It really matters very little whether they are behind the wheel of a truck or running a business or bringing up a family. They teach the truth by living it."

William J. Clinton, another one of our great presidents said, "If you live long enough, you'll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you'll be a better person. It's how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit."

These men went down in history! Now, it is time to see who will go down in history for passing this quiz!
