Interesting Quiz About Presidents of the United States

People who have never lived in the US often aren’t taught much about the history of this country. That is understandable. What is harder to grasp is that most of the people who have lived their entire lives in the US have also not been taught about most of that history. Americans tend not to know much about even the Presidents of the US. 

Of course, this leaves it wide open for a quiz that can be fun, interesting, and which can edify people, all at the same time. Sometimes, the facts are astonishing. In this quiz, pictures of presidents are shown in the questions/answers, but the pictures have been chosen at random, so don’t answer based on the picture, even if you know which president is in the picture.

    • That is true of trivia in general. The idea, though, is to spark an interest. Once there is an interest, a person can read about the history of each president before they were in office, as well as what they did when they were in office.
