I thought I wrote here...happy belated birthday to Sonya! I wonder why no one was there?? I will try to find out.
Great. Let us know:)
I couldn't find anything except that his wife was ill and this...John Quincy Adams Adams earned the dubious distinction as the first president elected who had won neither the popular vote nor the vote in the Electoral College. Andrew Jackson got more votes in both cases. Adams prevailed when the House of Representatives settled the election....Scary
Happy Birthday Sonya! That is really interesting! Big Hugs!
