America shares a birthday with Geraldo Rivera, Rube Goldberg, and Calvin Coolidge?
180 years ago today, consecutive Presidents Jefferson and Adams died within hours of each other, upon witnessing the 50th birthday of the country they helped found. 5 years later, in 1831, President Monroe jumped on the bandwagon of patriotically-timed Presidential expirations by dying on the country's 55th birthday.
(Honorable mention for Abe Lincoln's V.P. Hannibal Hamlin, the first ever Republican veep, who shuffled off on America's 125th birthday in 1891.)
