The only President born on the Fourth of July was James Monroe, who was sworn in as president on Independence Day. He is also known for being America’s fifth president and what he did to make us more independent from European nations like Austria and France.
James Monroe became our nation’s fifth president when Thomas Jefferson stepped down after two terms—a tradition that wasn’t yet law at the time but would go into effect with George Washington’s presidency. But what did he do for his country? Well, before getting too much into what made him great (or not so great),
let’s just take a look back at how we got here in the first place: When it came to voting, there were thirteen states that were actually considered independent,
while the other eight were what was called “the British Empire.” It is believed that James Monroe became the first president to be born on Independence Day and he did what many people would consider unthinkable he voluntarily stepped down from his post as President of America after two terms in office. He also served for what we now know as a long career in politics: twenty-four years (which still doesn’t beat John Adams’ thirty-five year run). But what else can you say about him? After all, here’s where things get complicated.

What’s your take on this debate over how good a president James Monroe really was—who deserves top ranking and who doesn’t deserve any ranking at all? And what are some things they might not know about this president?

what did he do after two terms in office? This is the only US President that was born on July fourth. He served as president from 1817 to 1825, and then became Secretary of State under John Quincy Adams for a few years before retiring to pursue his lifelong interest in land speculation. His presidency had mostly domestic successes with mixed results internationally because of political isolationism (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing). A lot of people have cited Monroe’s term in office as one where America grew stronger both economically and militarily by avoiding foreign entanglements like wars or alliances. I don’t see him being ranked
