Washington was an ultra-successful liquor distributor in the new country. He made rye whiskey, apple brandy and peach brandy in his Mount Vernon distillery.

Adams and Thomas Jefferson were close friends and correspondents — but they also had a bit of a rivalry. Adams’ dying words were, “Thomas Jefferson survives,” unaware that he had died hours earlier. In another shocker, both died on July 4, 1826.
- William McKinley.
William McKinley almost always wore a red carnation on his lapel as a good luck charm. While greeting a line of people in 1901, he gave the flower to a little girl. Seconds later, he was shot by an assassin, and died eight days later.
- Franklin Pierce.
Pierce had a tough time guiding the nation and perhaps an even tougher time guiding his horse. During his presidency, Pierce was arrested for running over a woman with his horse. Charges were later dropped due to a lack of evidence.
- Theodore Roosevelt.
Teddy Roosevelt was shot in an assassination attempt while delivering a speech in Milwaukee. “I don’t know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot,” he told the stunned audience. “I give you my word, I do not care a rap about being shot; not a rap.” He completed the 90-minute speech with the bullet still lodged in his chest.
- Martin Van Buren.
Van Buren’s nickname was “Old Kinderhook” because he was raised in Kinderhook, N.Y. A popular theory states that the term “O.K.” is derived from the O.K. clubs that sprung up to support his campaign.
- Abraham Lincoln.
Get ready to rumble: Abraham Lincoln could throw down in the wrestling ring. As a young man, he was only defeated once out of approximately 300 matches. He made it to the Wrestling Hall of Fame with the honor of “Outstanding American.”
- Woodrow Wilson.
Woodrow Wilson’s face is on the $100,000 bill, which very few have ever laid hands on. The bills were mainly designed for trade between between Federal Reserve banks, but fell out of use with the invention of the wire transfer. They still work as legal tender, but good luck finding someone who can break the change for you.
- Warren G. Harding.
At 25, Warren married a divorcée, Florence “Flossie” Mabel Kling DeWolf. She was five years older with a 10-year-old son from a former marriage. Flossie’s father once threatened to kill Harding if he married his daughter, but she pursued him relentlessly until he gave in. Girl power!
- Donald Trump.
His first real estate venture was with his family’s company, Elizabeth Trump and Son, where he was given control of in 1971 and renamed it The Trump Organization.
