Liberal England has the news that it’s been confirmed that US President John Taylor, who was in office from 1841-1845, still has living grandchildren.
It’s one of those strange and unlikely sounding facts, and it brings to mind two further pieces of trivia.
The first is that there is a photograph of Mozart’s wife, which I blogged about here. (It’s also a little bit strange and unlikely that I can have a) blogged something six years ago and b) still remember it!)
The second is a great trivia question that came up as part of my car-share to Mordor last year: which is the only US president to have worn Nazi uniform? The answer is
Ronald Reagan, who wore it as a costume in a movie. There’s a still from that here. And I somewhat fear to think what that google search is going to do to my online ads for a couple of weeks.
