George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt and Abraham were giants among the American Presidents. Washington lead a war against the most powerful army of his time. Bullets seemed to hit his uniform in battle, but none took him down. In fact, his enemies thought the he was bullet proof. Washington went on to win independence and became the first American President. Thomas Jefferson risked his life as the primary author of the Declaration of Independence and went on to become the 3rd President of the United States. Teddy Roosevelt lived an epic life. He was a soldier, a populist, a trust buster, a Nobel Peace Prize recipient and a visionary. Abraham Lincoln abolished slavery in the South, held a young nation together during the US Civil War and gave his life for his country. Lincoln was the 16th President.
