About This Quiz

America has had 45 presidents so far, and while some put more of a stamp on the office than others, all of them had their own particular quirks. They brought different strengths and weaknesses to the role; were informed by varying ideologies, and all had a plethora of advisers and staffers around them. 

Some were fortunate in having a cooperative congress and an agreeable Supreme Court. Others dealt with split control of the government and a weak mandate, perhaps in the form of losing the popular vote or entering office due to the death of a predecessor. 

Still, others suffered the mixed blessing and curse of holding the presidency during a period of great upheaval, from the Civil War to World War II to 9/11 itself, and all sorts of crises in between: the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, the Robber Barons and more. Some rose to the occasion and others were consumed by it. Then, of course, we can't forget the eight presidents who died in office: four murdered, and four dead of disease (thus technically making the presidency one of the most dangerous jobs in the world).
