Presidents' Day Pop Quiz

Okay, everyone, take out a pen and piece of paper and write down the names of as many U.S. Presidents as you can remember. No cheating. Ten minute time limit.

Done?

Here's the answer.

I got 23. The 19th century was kind of a blur for me.

Don't look at the comments until after you've finished, so we can discuss some names there.

Whoa, I missed some obvious ones. Woodrow Wilson, how could I forget about you?

Some barely rung a bell...Chester Arthur?

I feel like if they only served for a year, its ok that I don't know them.

My list of "didn't remember them" was one longer than the "did remember" list. There were a few on my 'didn't remember' that I totally know. I just didn't in my test. stupid test.

I got 25.
Can't believe I forgot Cleveland (hello, I live in Ohio!)
Can't believe I remembered Coolidge and Polk!

I can name 'em all, in order. But that's the type of rinky-dink useless trivia you learn in history gradual school. When the Dark Times come, I won't be able to procure food, shelter, or fire, but I will be to propound at length on Martin Van Buren's role in the formation of the Second Party System...booyah.

Oooh, impressive. I don't think my knowledge of bacterial physiology will come in very handy, either.
