Many of the United States presidents have served their country honorably, but all have made mistakes. This book gives a brief history on every U.S. president, including the things that show they're only human. Thomas Jefferson and John Adams dueled, argued, and name-called for years before becoming friends. John Quincy Adams approved an expedition to find mole people in the center of the earth. William Howard Taft got stuck in a bath tub. Andrew Johnson was the first president to be impeached. William Nixon liked eating cottage cheese with ketchup. Oh yeah, and he was a part of the Watergate Scandal. From little quirks to huge mishaps, no president was perfect. But America is what it is today because of them.
