Default BIZARRE facts about our presidents...

In warm weather, 6th president of the United States John Quincy Adams
customarily went skinny-dipping in the Potomac River before dawn.

9th U.S. president William Henry Harrison was inaugurated on a bitterly cold
day and gave the longest inauguration speech ever. The new president
promptly caught a cold that soon developed into pneumonia. Harrison died
exactly one month into his presidential term, the shortest in U.S. history.

John Tyler, 10th U.S. president, fathered 15 children (more than any other
president)--8 by his first wife, and 7 by his second wife. Tyler was past
his seventieth birthday when his 15th child was born.

Sedated only by brandy, 11th president of the United States James Polk
survived gall bladder surgery at the age of 17.

Often depicted wearing a tall black stovepipe hat, 16th president of the
United States Abraham Lincoln carried letters, bills, and notes in his hat.

17th U.S. president Andrew Johnson never attended school. His future wife,
Eliza McCardle, taught him to write at the age of 17. (Bonus fact about
Andrew Johnson: He only wore suits that he custom-tailored himself.)

Both ambidextrous and multilingual, 20th president of the United States
James Garfield could write Greek with one hand while writing Latin with the
other.

The teddy bear derived from 26th U.S. president Theodore ("Teddy")
Roosevelt's refusal to shoot a bear with her cub while on a hunting trip in
Mississippi.

Warren Harding, 29th U.S. president, played poker at least twice a week, and
once gambled away an entire set of White House china. His advisors were
nicknamed the "Poker Cabinet" because they joined the president in his
poker.

The letter "S" comprises the full middle name of the 33rd president, Harry
S. Truman. It represents two of his grandfathers, whose names both had "S"
in them.

George W. Bush, 43rd president of the United States, and his wife Laura got
married just three months after meeting each other.
