How many presidents can you name?

Stumbled across this on another message board that I frequent.  I got 35 my first time through.  Luckily I named all but two through the first part of US History, the part that I teach.

Dammit. I missed Tyler, Fillmore, Arthur, and Harding. Otherwise, all of them in about 6 minutes.

Got all 43 in under 4 minutes.  Pretty slick game.  If I would have had to fill in the dates too, I might have been a bit more screwed.

41 out of 43.  I gave up with 4 minutes left.  And I cannot believe I forgot Grant.  I've been to the man's tomb, for pete's sake!  The only other one I forgot was Van Buren.

On this particular one, the hardest ones for me are the Progressive Era presidents.  I hate that time period and have never bothered to study much of it.
