#2 John Adams (1797-1801)

The second president of the United States: John Adams.

Sometimes I feel a bit bad for John Adams.  He has been so overshadowed in history by George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.  He was the second president of the US, but he doesn't even have a famous memorial or his face on any currency (let alone on Mount Rushmore).  Even Andrew Jackson has his face on currency, and that guy was a bit of a tyrant!
