The United States Presidents

This week while driving in the car, Finn told me that George Washington was the first president of the United States.  I asked him if he knew the second?  He thought about it for a second and said, "John Adams."   Given that we have been listening fairly consistently to "Hamilton" the musical, I wasn't surprised that Finn knew that Thomas Jefferson was the third and James Madison was the fourth.  Then Finn said, "Monroe, Adams, Jackson, Van Buren, Harrison . . . " And on and on he went.  Much to my amazement, Finn can name all 44 Presidents in order.
