Amerikanske præsidenter

Dette er en liste over amerikanske præsidenter, siden USA's forfatning trådte i kraft i 1789. Listen viser også deres regeringstid, parti og vicepræsidenter. Farverne symboliserer partiet, de tilhørte.

Nummereringen viser, hvilket nummer i rækken de var som præsident, og der gøres ikke forskel på, om de sad én eller to perioder. Eneste undtagelse fra denne regel er Grover Cleveland, som sad i to ikke på hinanden følgende perioder. Han tælles derfor både som USA's 22. og 24. præsident.

Frem til den 20. forfatningstilføjelse blev vedtaget 23. januar 1933 trådte den nye præsident ind i stillingen 4. marts. Efter dette tillæg blev datoen sat til 20. januar, og den første præsident, som blev taget i ed på denne dato, var Franklin D. Roosevelt, da han begyndte sin anden termin som præsident i 1937.

Abraham Lincoln O-77 matte collodion print.jpg
Scholars and enthusiasts alike believe this portrait of Abraham Lincoln, taken on November 8, 1863, eleven days before his famed Gettysburg Address, to be the best photograph of him ever taken. Lincoln’s character was notoriously difficult to capture in pictures, but Alexander Gardner’s close-up portrait, quite innovative in contrast to the typical full-length portrait style, comes closest to preserving the expressive contours of Lincoln’s face and his penetrating gaze.

Naval Historical Center, Washington, D.C. -- A painting of President John Adams (1735-1826), 2nd president of the United States, by Asher B. Durand (1767-1845). Every October 30th, the birthday of John Adams, Naval Reserve Center (NRC) Quincy, Mass., conducts a wreath-laying ceremony at First Parish Church. Both Adams and his son President John Quincy Adams are buried at the church. Adams was one of the leading advocates for the creation of a Continental Navy, he drafted the first set of rules and regulations for the new navy. He was able to convince the Congress to pass an “Act Providing a Naval Armament,” which was less than he thought was necessary but at least provided for the equipping of three frigates, the Constitution, the United States, and the Constellation.

James Knox Polk by George Peter Alexander Healy (National Portrait Gallery).jpg

Object number: L/NPG.41.2006 Exhibition label: It is often said that James K. Polk was the first "dark horse" to claim a presidential nomination, and during his White House campaign of 1844, his opponents were fond of sneering, "Who is James Polk?" Once he was in office, however, the question quickly lost its sarcastic bite. A diligent worker who abhorred the thought of time unprofitably spent, Polk set four goals for his presidency-reducing tariffs, creating an independent treasury system, settling the Oregon boundary dispute with Great Britain, and acquiring California. None of the four objectives was easily reached, and gaining California meant going to war with Mexico. By his administration's close, however, all had been accomplished. Unfortunately, Polk's success came at great personal cost. A spent man, he died within four months of retiring to private life. Eleventh president, 1845–1849

The life and career of James K. Polk reflected the country’s westward shift. His path followed the frontier as he moved from his birthplace in North Carolina to Tennessee. Polk, like most Americans in the nineteenth century, favored westward expansion and believed that settlers were destined to move across North America. As president, he acquired more than a million square miles of territory for the United States, in part by fomenting the Mexican-American War. As one of the most consequential presidents in American history, the vast expansion of territory opened up the question of slavery’s future, an issue that sparked conflict during the period leading up to the Civil War. Driven and determined, Polk took office with a limited agenda, accomplished all of it, and left office, as he planned, after only one term.

Warren G. Harding, by Harris & Ewing. Warren Gamaliel Harding (November 2, 1865 – August 2, 1923) was the 29th president of the United States, serving from 1921 until his death in 1923. A member of the Republican Party, he was one of the most popular U.S. presidents to that point. After his death, a number of scandals, including the Teapot Dome scandal, came to light, as did his extramarital affair with Nan Britton; those eroded his popular regard.
