Know your presidents!

My fellow Americans,

In honor of President's Day, when most people will be turning off their alarm clocks and sleeping in late on a Monday morning (and some feeling jypped that they no longer get both Washington and Lincoln's birthdays off), try this here quiz on for size:

http://games.toast.net/presidents/

I got 17/20, not bad.

I don't know if this is any good for a foreigner with about 0 (nil) idea of the USA, mostly guessing took me to 8/20.

19. Near Perfect! This was a difficult test, you should be proud!

I underestimated the number of Presidents that had never served in the military. :undecide:

8, I don't think that's bad. Test was quite hard and I'd like to see how much the average american would know about british prime ministers.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away.

Life as a Milan fan, its great

8. The test was hard. The question about which party never held office, d was the Repulican-Democrat party. Are they talking about the Republicans/democrats or was this a party which ran for president and won? If not it should be worded differently.

The Republican-Democrat party was the originial Democratic Party. I think.

The Democrats claim that the Democratic-Republicans were the original Democrats, but it's more complicated than that. The Democrats were a splinter group from the Democratic-Republicans, after the disastrous realigning election of 1824. Andrew Jackson (yes, Humbird, New Orleans: whatever) renamed the contingent that supported him the 'Democrats', taking the poorer, lower-class, newly-enfranchised voters with him.

The Republicans have an equally valid, but less publicised, claim to the same pedigree. The faction that supported John Quincy Adams formed the National Republican Party, which went on to form the Whigs, which would become the core of the Republican Party that we know today.
