Can You Name America’s First Presidents?

It was recently reported that many college students don’t know that Thomas Jefferson was once the president. That thought is particularly alarming when we consider that those same students will likely be choosing the nation’s forty-fifth president in tomorrow’s election. One has to wonder how many other voters are in the same boat when it comes to such basic civic knowledge.

The following quiz lists the images and names of America’s first 12 presidents. See if you can name them in order, and then consider: would the outcome of American elections be a lot different if the voting population had a greater knowledge of history?
