I’d like to introduce my grandson Jack. He is 7 yrs old and is an expert on Presidential facts. He memorized and recited all 45 presidents in order in less then 1 minute for his school talent show. Jack has aspirations of being President some day. Here are some of Jack’s Presidential facts with a little help from me.

  1. Chester Alan Arthur owned over 80 pairs of pants. He also was 1 of 5 presidents who was never elected. He assumed office when James Garfield was assassinated.
  2. The first Bath Tub with running water was installed when Millard Fillmore got elected.
