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?














27. Howard Taft

28. Woodrow Wilson

29.  Warren Harding

30.  Calvin Coolidge

31. Herbert Hoover

32. Franklin Roosevelt

33. Harry Truman

34. Dwight Eisenhower

35. John Kennedy

36. Lyndon Johnson

37. Richard Nixon

38. Gerald Ford

Quite a cast of characters!

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.
