Who was the better president? (Eliminated: Andrew Johnson) See matchup information in the comments!
This is one of the better match ups, usually they're an easy choice.
As the tourney goes on, they'll get better.
Correction: This is the "battle for fifth place," so the winner of this round will be entered into the rankings as the fifth greatest president.
Years in Office:
Adams: Thomas Jefferson
Roosevelt: John Nance Garner, Henry A. Wallace, Harry S. Truman
Greatest accomplishments (arguably):
Adams: Stayed out of war with France despite turmoil overseas
Roosevelt: Decreased Unemployment rate from 25% to 2% over his tenure
Greatest failures (arguably):
Adams: Signed into law the extremely unpopular Alien and Sedition Acts
Roosevelt: Allowed Japanese internment camps to take place in the US during World War II
FDR didn't just allow internment camps; he ordered them.
