American Presidents List

Updated on March 29, 2011

Introduction to the American Presidents List

There have been few countries which have displayed quite the same level of growth as the United States. In this American Presidents List I will be giving you each and every US president, and with each one I will be creating a hub that talks about what this American president did for the United States of America.

In this American Presidents list I will be giving you both the amazing and the dirty sides of some of the world's most powerful people, and how they influenced the world with the power which they weilded.

This page dedicated to American History will help anyone who is doing American Presidents research, by giving you a simple American Presidents list filled with their length of term in office, and which party they represented.  Clicking on their names will soon take you to pages filled with facts and information on these important historical figures!

American Presidents of the Future

No-one knows what the future will hold, but with America soon becoming known as corporate America, some theorists are speculating that America is heading toeards another bloody revolution, this time focused on the seperation of corporation and state, securing governments which act for the people rather than for the interests of the super rich. Do you think America will revolt for the removal of 'puppet Presidents'?

      Good question, I took a look in to this and apparently it was his mothers maiden name.
