 Fun Quiz on Presidents
Here is a fun quiz on presidential relationships: Which of the following pairs of United States presidents were NOT related? John Adams and John Quincy Adams; William Hentry Harrison and Benjamin Harrison; Andrew Johnson and Lyndon Johnson; Theodore Roosevelt and Frnaklin Delano Roosevelt; George H. W. Bush and George W.

Extra points for knowing the relationship of those who WERE related.
Have fun. :)

To be honest I was expecting to be humiliated when you replied and I got most wrong. It's pretty shocking to hear that I got them all right.

I'm going to guess their relationships below in blue.

John Adams and John Quincy Adams - yes, they are related
John Quincy Adams is John Adams son.

William Henry Harrison and Benjamin Harrison - yes, they are related
Hmm let's go with brothers. Why? Well, you wouldn't ask this question if ALL related presidential pairs are father and son.

Andrew Johnson and Lyndon Johnson - no, they are not related

Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin Delano Roosevelt - yes, they are related
Let's go with FDR being Theodore Roosevelt's grandson.

George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush - yes, they are related
This one I know for a fact. Father and son.

You got some of them right, Chris. I will leave the topic open for a bit to see if anyone else can come up with more.
