Classic Hangman - US Presidents

Endorsement from my wife:

http://www.superkids.com/aweb/tools/words/hangman/pres.sht   Just a suggestion though since it's more for kids than adults. I found this at my word of the day site: super kids. I played it. It's kind of fun. Might play it in front of my son in hopes he'll like it.

 I guess this game may be a way to hang your least favorite Presidents...

Speaking of Hangman - Grover Cleveland, as Erie County sheriff, had hangman duties in his job description...

"On Sept 6 1872, Buffalo sheriff — and future U.S. President — Grover Cleveland personally sprang the trap to hang matricide Patrick Morrissey. Morrissey’s drunken altercation with his widowed mother, that led to a stabbing, that led him to the gallows, would obviously be lost to remembrance but for his accidental association with the man who would become president 12 years later."

It is very surprising to become a president in that time. I just wondered about his job. He is a great successor in his life. Interesting too.
