President's Families Trivia Questions

1. The first death in our timeline of tragedies involving members of the Kennedy family occurred in 1944. How did Joseph P. Kennedy Jr die?

From Quiz
The Kennedys: A Timeline Of Tragedy

Answer: Died in aircraft explosion on top secret mission

Joseph P. Kennedy was the eldest of the family of nine, and some say he was his father's favourite. During WW2, Kennedy volunteered to fly with the US Navy and served initially in the Caribbean. In 1943, his squadron of B24 bombers was sent to England. He flew enough missions to qualify for leave, but twice declined. On August 12, 1944, he took part in a top secret mission to fly a Liberator bomber packed with bombs on a drone mission. The idea was that Kennedy and a colleague would bail out, leaving their aircraft to be radio-controlled by others accompanying them. At 6.20 that morning, two explosions ripped the Liberator apart and the two pilots died.

2. For which US president did Harriet Lane act as 'First Lady'?

From Quiz White House Weirdness

Answer: James Buchanan

Harriet Rebecca Lane Johnston (1830-1903) was the niece of bachelor James Buchanan and served as his First Lady from 1857 to 1861. Harriet was the daughter of Elliot Lane and Jane Ann Buchanan Lane (James' sister). By the time Harriet was 11 years old she was an orphan and James, her favorite uncle, was appointed her legal guardian while he was still a Democratic senator from Pennsylvania. Buchanan went on to be appointed Secretary of State and later elected President; he chose the popular Miss Lane to act as First Lady. She played the part very well, despite the tensions that enveloped the country at the time. Seven states had seceded by the time Buchanan left office.

3. Abraham Lincoln's dog was the first 'First Dog' to be photographed, but what was his name?

From Quiz POTUS' Pets

Answer: Fido

Although somehow I expected more creativity from our 16th President, the family dog was named Fido. Fido was a yellow, mixed breed dog who would go into town with Lincoln prior to his becoming president. When Lincoln was elected, all the noise and ceremony from the fireworks and cannons scared Fido, so the family chose to leave their beloved dog in Springfield, Illinois with a friend, rather than take him to the White House. The photo of Fido must have been taken before the Lincolns left for Washington, probably as a memento to remember him by until they could all be reunited.

4. What book did Jackie help Jack write during his convalescence from back surgeries in 1955?

From Quiz Jack and Jackie: The President and First Lady 2

Answer: Profiles In Courage

Jack underwent several spinal operations over two years, nearly dying and was rarely in the Senate. During his convalescence in 1956, he published "Profiles in Courage", a book describing eight instances in which U.S. Senators risked their careers by standing by their personal beliefs. He dedicated it to Jackie, whom helped him, not only with the writing, but also the publishing of the book.

5. George W. and Laura Bush came into the White House in 2001, by the narrowest margin in over a century. They brought with them two grown daughters, named this.

7. What president who was in the White House from 1913-1921 had a cat named Puffins?

From Quiz Presidential Kitties

Answer: Woodrow Wilson

From Quiz Kennedys in Politics

Answer: Bobby Kennedy's loss in the 1968 Oregon presidential primary

Bobby lost the Oregon primary to Minnesota Senator Eugene McCarthy. JFK lost the vice-presidential nomination to Estes Kefauver on the floor of the 1956 Democratic convention, but it was a vote by the convention delegates, not a popular election. Many people think that if he had won that vote, and joined in Adlai Stevenson's ill-fated run for president that year, he may have been tarred as a loser and not won the nomination or the presidency in 1960.

18. John was born on November 25, 1960, in Georgetown, Maryland, right after his father had been elected President of the United States in one of the closest elections in American history. Who did President Kennedy run against?
