Listography 2011 – List #9

Ooooh, this is SO up my alley!!!

List all the (U.S.) presidents you can name.

Don’t mind if I do…In no particular order (I numbered them so I would know how many I was missing):

1 – George Washington
2 – John Adams
3 – Thomas Jefferson
4 – James Monroe
5 – James Madison
6 – John Quincy Adams
7 – Andrew Jackson
8 – William McKinley
9 – John Tyler
10 – Benjamin Harrison
11 – William Henry Harrison
12 – Rutherford B. Hayes
13 – James K. Polk
14 – James Buchanan
15 – Zachary Taylor
16 – Abraham Lincoln
17 – Ulysses S. Grant
18 – Andrew Johnson
19 – Millard Fillmore
20 – Chester Arthur
21 – Grover Cleveland
22 – Warren Harding
23 – (Howard?) Taft
24 – Theodore Roosevelt
25 – Franklin D. Roosevelt
26 – Herbert Hoover
27 – Barack Obama
28 – George W. Bush
29 – Bill Clinton
30 – George Bush
31 – Ronald Reagan
32 – Jimmy Carter
33 – Richard Nixon
34 – Gerald Ford
35 – Lyndon Johnson
36 – John F. Kennedy
37 – Dwight D. Eisenhower
38 – James Garfield
39 – Woodrow Wilson
40 – Harry Truman
41 – Calvin Coolidge
42 – Martin Van Buren

I pondered over this list for over a week to see if I could remember the last one. I finally caved and looked it up. Stupid Franklin Pierce!!! And I know I know him!! That KILLS me!!! GRR! Also, in case anyone is wondering, though President Obama is the 44th President, there are only 43 men on the list. Grover Cleveland served two non-consecutive terms, meaning he is both the 22nd and the 24th President.

Memorably,

Me 😀
