Can You Name Every President of the United States?

How many U.S. presidents can you name?

Introduction

How well do you know U.S. presidents? You may think you know everything about them, but there are a lot of interesting, funny, and intriguing facts our former presidents that aren’t common knowledge. For instance, did you know that George W. Bush was head cheerleader back in high school? Take this quiz to discover more lesser-known facts about these leaders while seeing if you can name all forty-five presidents of the United States of America!

Because they have each had such an important job, we are sometimes likely to forget that presidents are still human beings, just like you and me. (Unless of course you’re a fish that’s learned to read. In that case, kudos, but this doesn’t apply to you.) All the weird idiosyncrasies that come along with the package deal of “being human” apply to them too. In his lifetime, I’m sure Ronald Reagan missed the top step of a stairway and tripped a little bit. I’d reckon that at least once when a waiter said, “Enjoy your meal,” Obama has accidentally replied, “You too.” Even George Washington probably sneezed at an inopportune time. Always remember: No one is exempt from the occasional spinach in their teeth.

So, go ahead and click “Let’s Play!” Brush up on your presidential knowledge while learning new facts about each one. It’s a win-win!
