USA Vice Presidents Quiz

Take the USA Vice Presidents Quiz
This fun USA Vice Presidents Quiz will test your knowledge of the 48 individuals who have held the second highest office in the United States of America. Did you know that four United States presidents served terms without vice presidents? They are: John Tyler (Whig Party 1841-1854), Millard Fillmore (Whig Party (1850-1853), Andrew Johnson (Union Party 1865-1869), and Chester Alan Arthur (Republican Party 1881-1885).

In each of these instances, the vice president ascended in accordance with the United States presidential line of succession. The Constitution provides that if a president dies, resigns, or is removed from office, the vice president immediately becomes president. John Tyler succeeded William Henry Harrison, who died of pneumonia on April 4, 1841, just 31 days after taking office. Millard Fillmore succeeded Zachary Taylor, who died from acute gastroenteritis on July 9, 1850. Andrew Johnson succeeded Abraham Lincoln, who was assassinated on on April 14, 1865. Chester Alan Arthur succeeded James Abram Garfield, who was assassinated on September 19, 1881.

Until adoption of the Twenty-fifth Amendment on February 23, 1967, a vacancy in the office of the vice president could not be filled until the next election. Three vice presidents served under Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who also died in office. Seven Presidents were served by two vice presidents. In two cases, vice presidents resigned—one to avoid prison, and another to take a seat in the U.S. Senate. Seven vice presidents died in office. In fact, both of James Madison's vice presidents died in office.

Test your knowledge of the United States vice presidents. Several clues are provided for each question, including the political party and dates of office for each president.
