So you don't like the current President we have right now? Not to worry, because at least we can look back and remember the forty-four men who preceded him.

What's that? You can only remember seven of those previous forty-four? Well we can fix that.

Rather than try and memorize every President and their accomplishments in chronological order, I took the liberty in making things easier by attaching a nickname or phrase that basically sums up the legacy of each one.
