Other Useful Presidential Sites

Internet Public Library: The Presidents of the United States - With pictures and stats, this site contains many of the basic facts to need on any of our past Presidents. Biographies, dates, historic documents and links to related sites on each President.

National Archives: The Presidential Libraries - Several former Presidents (and/or scholars, friends, etc.) established libraries devoted to studies of their respective careers. This National Archives site is a directory to the twelve Presidential libraries. The twelve: Clinton, GHW Bush, Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, LBJ, Kennedy, Eisenhower, Truman, FDR and Hoover.

Atlas of U.S. Presidential Elections - Dave Leip prepared this very informative site, which provides historic voting results from the Presidential general elections of 1860-2008 -- plus results from the Presidential primaries from the few most recent cycles.

VicePresidents.com - Yup, a site dedicated entirely to the history of 46 men who have served as Vice President of the United States. Did you know that 18 of the 46 either died in office or resigned? More trivia, plus bios, pix, etc.

National Archives: US Electoral College - This site, maintained by the National Archives, is the closest thing there is to an "official" site for the Electoral College -- the folks who actually elect the President of the United States. Just remember: Al Gore won 500,000 more votes than George W. Bush in 2000 ... but Bush was elected President because he won more electoral votes (271 versus 267) than Gore.
