Map of the Birth Places of Presidents and their Wives

The MIBAZAAR blog has a nice map showing the birth places of United States presidents and their wives.

Here's a fun fact: John Quincy Adams' wife,  Louisa Catherine Johnson Adams was the only first lady born outside the United States.  She was born in London, England.  The distance between Adams' birthplace and Louisa's is over 3,000 miles.  The greatest distance between president and first lady birthplaces belongs to the Obamas with over 4,200 miles distance between Hawaii and Chicago.

Happy Presidents' Day/Washington's Birthday!
