Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

More US Presidents - Part 2

As I said in the previous post, the Portrait Gallery has an exhibit of US Presidents' portraits that are not the official portraits.  It's interesting to see what these men looked like.  It's also interesting to read about what they accomplished in office; not much for most of them according to a book my husband recently read. 


It's unlikely you'll be able to name these guys so I'll label them for you.  There will be some to guess from the 20th century.

7. Andrew Jackson

8. Martin Van Buren


9.  William Henry Harrison


10. John Tyler


11. James Polk


12. Zachary Taylor


13.  Millard Fillmore



14. Franklin Pierce




15. James Buchanan


This one is recognizable I'm sure: 16. Abraham Lincoln


17. Andrew Johnson

18. Ulysses Grant


19. Rutherford Hayes


20. James Garfield


21. Chester Arthur


22. & 24.  Grover Cleveland


23. Benjamin Harrison


25. William McKinley


26. Theodore Roosevelt.


Do you recognize the rest of these?

As a Canadian, I am proud that I recognized quite a few of them.

Funny Polk and his wife were in the news last week as we drove through Tennessee.
