Quote of the Day- James Monroe

Pop singer Justin Bieber, the Supreme Court and Tropical Storm Debby are trending on Bing. We sense that this quote from James Monroe (1758-1831) will not go viral. but we'll see what happens.

One of the most surreal things regarding American presidential history is that three of the first five presidents died on the Fourth of July; none have died on that day since.

Both John Adams, the second president, and Thomas Jefferson, the third president, died on July 4, 1826. Monroe died on that exact date five years later.

Four of the first five presidents, everyone except Adams, was from Virginia, including Monroe.

Here is his quote:

"A little flattery will support a man through great fatigue."
