44 FUN FACTS ABOUT PRESIDENTS

FROM THE DESK OF Paul Stano

THE FREEDOM TO CHOOSE ... OR NOT

To Impress Your Friends and Relatives

As I think about Independence Day, it occurs to me that the freedoms our forefathers fought for all had to do with choice and the ability to have a say in how we choose to live our lives. Too many people around the world don’t have this ability. So many of my friends and neighbors who have choices forfeit them. This puts their adult children and grandchildren in a terrible position, having to make difficult and expensive decisions about their loved one’s long-term care. So on this Independence Day, stop and think about the many choices you have. And remember that NOT choosing is a choice. Think about how you want to live your life, how you intend to pursue happiness, and how you can ease the worry and stress on your loved ones by choosing how YOU want to handle your long-term care.

Can you name all 44 U.S. presidents? By most estimates, only about 1% of Americans know the name of every person who’s held the country’s highest office. To helpmake you a member of that exclusive club, here is one fun fact about each of our commanders in chief just in time for the Fourth of July.

Despite appearing to have worn a wig, George Washington’s hair was entirely his own. The stark white color was the result of careful powdering. John Adams was a prolific writer of love letters. We know of more than 1,000 correspondences between him and his wife, Abigail. Thomas Jeffersonmaintained a well-stocked wine cellar. In fact, he was one of early America’s foremost experts on the beverage. James Madison was America’s smallest president in terms of stature. He stood 5 feet, 4 inches tall and weighed about 100 pounds. Washington isn’t the only future president in the famous painting“Washington Crossing the Delaware.”If you look closely, you’ll see James Madison holding the flag. John Quincy Adams was the only president to serve in the House of Representatives after his time in the Oval Office. Andrew Jackson challenged over 100 men to duels during his lifetime but killed only one. Known as Old Kinderhook, MartinVan Buren’s campaign slogan popularized the term“OK.” WilliamHenry Harrison was the first president to die in office. He fell ill of either typhoid or pneumonia and passed away only 31 days into his tenure. After his time as president, JohnTyler ran for Confederate office.

Many viewed him as a traitor at the time of his death. James K. Polk was a temperate man who didn’t have time for fun and games. He even banned dancing in theWhite House. Zachary Taylor contracted cholera from a bowl of cherries served withmilk. He died five days after being exposed. Millard Fillmore once personally helped put out a fire at the Library of Congress. During his lifetime, many people believed Franklin Pierce ran over a woman with his carriage. Historians dispute the validity of this story. Every single president has beenmarried at some point except James Buchannan, who remained a bachelor until his dying day. Abraham Lincoln is enshrined in the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, having won over 300 matches. No president had humbler beginnings than Andrew Johnson. He spent two years as an indentured servant before running away with his brother. What does the“S.”stand for in Ulysses S. Grant? Nothing, it’s just an“S.” In 1880, Rutherford B. Hayes became the first sitting president to lay eyes on the Pacific Ocean.
