Presidents Day is coming next week. But aside from the occasional musical tribute or potato-chip portrait, all the love goes to the handful of Chief Executives who adorn our money and monuments. Lincoln, Washington, Jefferson - yeah, great guys, but what about the rest? Can you identify the eight less celebrated presidents pictured below, who may have occupied the Oval Office but never served a term in the nation's heart?

I have no idea who those people are, but I do feel that #7 should have just accepted that he was balding and to stop trying to fool everyone.
Gerald Ford is the only president to never have been elected into the office. He was appointed to replace Spiro Agnew as Vice President, and a year later took over as President when Nixon left. He lost the 1976 election to Jimmy Carter.
Pretty sure that Pierce played the dad on Bonanza...
Definitely not 100%, but I'm a big fan of learning about the presidents and my uncle used to have a trash can with all their pictures on it that I would stare at (because I'm cool).
My guesses are:
1 Benjamin Harrison
2 John Tyler
3 Gerald Ford
4 James Garfield
5 Rutherford B Hayes
6 Millard Fillmore
7 Franklin Pierce
8 Warren G Harding
I only know:
3. Gerald Ford
8. Warren Harding
-sounds like a car dealership!
I also guessed Harrison, but for the wrong photo.
My guesses were:
6. Andrew Johnson
8. Some guy who looks just like Thomas Edison
#5 looks like my grandfather.
Hayes, is it? No, his name was Andrews.
Ahh president Tyler, the one who annexed Texas as to gain political favor. Namesake to Tyler, Texas, another well known outpost.
