Strange Coincidences About United States Presidents

Strange Coincidences About United States Presidents

A Newspaper extract from Voice of Sumter, Livingston, Alabama


May 17, 1836

There have been many circumstances related of our revolution and the great men who projected and carried it through, which were they not so well attented, (sic) would almost induce a suspicion of their truth; but the following striking coincidence is one, of which do not recollect ever before having seen a notice of:

  • Washington born Feb. 22, 1732, inaugurated 1789; term of service expired in the 66th year of his age.
  • John Adams born Oct. 19, 1735, inaugurated 1797; term of service expired in the 66th year of his age/
  • Jefferson born April 2, 1743, inaugurated 1801; term of service expired in the 66th year of his age.
  • Madison born March 5, 1751, inaugurated 1809; term of service expired in the 66th year of his age.
  • Monroe born April 2, 1759, inaugurated 1817; term of service expired in the 66th year of his age.

The above is a list of five Presidents of the United States, all men of the revolution, who ended their terms of service in the 66th year of their age! J. Q. Adams’ term had he been elected a second time, would have also, expired in the 66th year of his age. (North Alabamian)
