President’s Day Quiz
July 4th is a beloved U.S. holiday, but did you know this date has historical significance for at least one president of the United States? Which of these three presidents was born on Independence Day?
🔲 Thomas Jefferson
🔲 Calvin Coolidge
🔲 John Adams
Calvin Coolidge. Born on July 4, 1872, Coolidge was the 30th president of the United States.
Interestingly, both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the second and third presidents of the United States, died the same day on July 4, 1826. Although Jefferson and Adams were good friends prior to Jefferson serving as Vice President to Adams, they became political rivals, but exchanged more than 150 letters after Adams wrote a New Year’s greeting in 1812, leading to a reconciliation between the two former presidents.
