      Interesting facts!

      Interestingly also, JFK was not the youngest US President. It was Theodore Roosevelt (but he came to office at age 42 upon the assassination of President McKinley in 1901). So JFK was the youngest elected President. (However, he had been elected to Congress in 1946, having previously been a journalist, and previously a naval commander — of PT109.) So he was young, but not exactly inexperienced in various roles.

      Great Informative Hub on US Presidents. If you get the opportunity, check out my Hub detailing the Presidents we had before President George Washington. I'm a Substitute Teacher and Math Tutor for Jamestown Public Schools. I learned about the Presidents that we had before President Washington while subbing for a History Class. It so fascinated me I had to research the topic and write about it.

      I love it! Bring on the history!

      My favorite presidents were John Adams and James Madison, because of their wives. Abigail and Dolly were amazing women, and role models of mine.

      Fantastic hub!
