George Washington was the first president under the Constitution, but before him there were eight Presidents of the United States "in Congress Assembled," under the Articles of Confederation. The first of these was a man named John Hanson. So George Washington was actually the 9th president of the US.

14. Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy were two of America's most beloved Presidents, and their lives and deaths followed striking parallels. Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846 and to the presidency in 1860. A century later, Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946 and to the presidency in 1960. Both were civil-rights advocates and became widely popular presidents. Both men were succeeded by a Vice-President named Johnson. Both Johnsons were Southerners, Senators, Democrats and they both turned out to be rather unpopular Presidents. Andrew Johnson was born in 1808, and Lyndon Johnson was born in 1908. John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald were both southerners and political malcontents who favored unpopular ideas. Booth was born in 1839 and Oswald was born in 1939. The names Lincoln and Kennedy each contain seven letters. The names Andrew Johnson and Lyndon Johnson each contain thirteen letters. The names John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald each contain fifteen letters. Booth shot Lincoln in a theater and fled to a warehouse. Oswald shot Kennedy from a warehouse and fled to a theater. Both assassins were shot to death before they could stand trial. Mary Todd Lincoln and Jacqueline Kennedy both spoke French, both were pregnant four times but lost two children (each woman miscarried once while residing in the White House); and after their husbands were assassinated, both women declined all invitations from subsequent Presidents to return to the White House. John Kennedy, Superintendent of New York City Police, had expressed worries about Lincoln's safety, and Lincoln's secretary, named Kennedy, had advised him not to go to Ford's Theater that night. Kennedy's secretary, Evelyn Lincoln, had expressed worries about his safety and had advised him not to go to Dallas. When Lincoln was buried, his son Robert, moved to 3014 N Street, in Georgetown. When Kennedy was buried, his son moved with his family to 3014 N Street, in Georgetown. Both men died of gunshot wounds in the back of the head, on a Friday, while sitting next to their wives. And the car Kennedy was riding in was a Lincoln.

Offended by the presumptuousness of his guests, the cook, George Crum, quickly made up a new batch of potatoes shaved paper-thin, fried them, and sent them back in.
