presidential fact #30

When Warren G. Harding's father, George, was a Union soldier, he visited the White House and shook Lincoln's hand.

(Warren G. Harding was the first president born after the Civil War.)

  1. Thanks for this post. Wasn't Harding's father's name George Tryon Harding? I've not heard of his name being Charles before.
