Dead Presidents: October

Happy 87th Birthday to Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States and happily not a dead president, but an active former president, one of the most active the nation has ever seen.

October's a good month for presidential birthdays: Besides Carter, there's John Adams (1735), Rutherford B. Hayes (1822), Chester A. Arthur (1829), Theodore Roosevelt (1858), and Dwight Eisenhower (1890). All of them will be celebrated here.

Only two presidents died in October so far: Pierce (1869) and Hoover (1964). Their lives will be recalled here.

And there will be a few entertaining videos.
