1-Franklin Delano Roosevelt
2-1775
3-mayflower in 1620
4-And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash'd out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
5-adam john
6-its a project for building a atomic bomb

Maybe you should restrict a trivia like this to people who aren't American? Any self-respecting American should know most of these off the top of his head.

I am impressed!
But when I said twice elected, I meant just on Grover Cleveland, You mentioned him so, O.K.
Everything seems to be in order, so You said You don't want Milbucks, if You don't want them, than to who do You want it donated?
