Quote of the Day- James Monroe
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."
