about

From George Washington to Barack Obama, this collection of weird and wild—but true!—facts will show you a whole other side of our nation’s leaders:


   • Andrew Jackson was married to a bigamist.
   • Martin Van Buren wore pistols in the Senate chamber in case things got too rowdy.
   • Franklin Pierce ran over a woman with his horse while in office and was arrested, but was released when the police realized he was the president.
   • James Garfield could simultaneously write Greek with one hand and Latin with the other.
   • Dwight D. Eisenhower’s nickname for his staff driver was “Private Parts.”
   • Barack Obama can bench press 200 pounds.

 

Stephen Spignesi is the New York Times bestselling author of more than 50 books including The Italian 100, The Complete Titanic, George Washington’s Leadership Lessons, The USA Book of Lists, The Essential Stephen King, and American Firsts.
