redngold takes a stab at one of her favorite trivia topics:

1. Who is the only other President besides JFK buried at Arlington National Cemetery?

???? William Howard Taft?


2. What do the following presidents have in common?
Benjamin Harrison
George Herbert Walker Bush
Theodore Roosevelt
John Quincy Adams

All had relatives in the presidency:
Benjamin Harrison's ancestor, William Henry Harrison
George Herbert Walker Bush's son, George Walker Bush
Theodore Roosevelt's distant cousin, Franklin Delano Roosevelt
John Quincy Adams's father, John Adams

Interestingly enough, Franklin Delano Roosevelt married another distant cousin of Theodore Roosevelt, who was therefore also his cousin: Eleanor Roosevelt Roosevelt!

3. Which president lived the longest after his term(s) was/were up?

Richard Nixon


4. Who was the only bachelor President?

James Buchanan


5. What do the following Presidents have in common?
George Washington
William Henry Harrison
Ulysses S. Grant
Dwight D. Eisenhower

All attained the rank of General in the Continental Army/US Army before being elected president.
Up, up and away!
