At six feet, four inches, Abraham Lincoln was our tallest president. James Buchanan was the only president who never married. Ulysses was originally President Grant's middle name and the famous S was the result of an accidental switch. From George Washington to George Bush, these and other fascinating facts come to light through this examination of the men who have held the office of United States president. This reference book offers a unique perspective of the forty-two men who have served as the chief executive of the United States. From date of birth to place of death, sixty-three comparative lists present a plethora of presidential information. Organized in a loosely chronological manner, subjects discussed include presidential families, physical characteristics, religious preferences, previous occupations, election statistics and final quotes. Each list is headed by a title and organizational notes from the author. Information is limited to facts only (free from bias or judgment), and is arranged in a useful, easy-to-reference format.
