21 John Adams John Adams John Adams was born on October 30, 1735 in Quincy, Massachusetts, United States. Adams served as the president of the United States from March 4, 1797 to March 4, 1801. He died on July 4, 1826 at the age of 90.

Gosh, it's John QUINCY Adams that should be here, not John Adams. He saved this nation from a war that was unnecessary. And that is why he served only one term. - IcetailofWishClan

22 Richard Nixon Richard Nixon Richard Milhous Nixon was the 37th President of the United States, serving from 1969 to 1974 when he became the only U.S.

Nothing that good really went on during his presidency. He abused the power of his role and didn't have a real exit strategy to Vietnam. Some people believe that Watergate overshadows his accomplishments as president, but there weren't many in the first place. - Beezer

Actually, Nixon did have plenty of accomplishments. While I do think Nixon deserves all the hate he gets and was a pretty terrible president and person, we shouldn't ignore his vast amount of successes. - Alpha101

23 William McKinley William McKinley

He was a good leader, but maybe not in the right direction. While laborers were begging for change and a right to collectively bargain, he was against it. - Beezer
