Presidential Randoms

In honor of Presidents' Day, here are a few Presidential Randoms:

1. Theodore Roosevelt was the first U.S. President to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

2. George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, John Q. Adams, Andrew Jackson, and William Henry Harrison were all born British subjects.

3. James Buchanan was the only President never to marry.

4. Twenty-six Presidents were lawyers.

5. Both Ohio and Virginia claim to have produced the most presidents. Both lay claim to William Henry Harrison, who was born in Virginia, but later moved to Ohio and served as both a member of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senator from that state.
