I thought you meant the leader who had the shortest reign as head of state.

I knew this one. Actually, Benito Juarez is a big deal in Mexico, he is not just another president. His birthday is a holiday.

His most famous quote is “Among individuals, as among nations, respect for the rights of others is peace.”

Yes, we studied him back home. He is regarded in Mexico like Washington or Lincoln are regarded in the US.

Exactly. I would say more like Lincoln. The super famous non-founding father.

I’m surprised they teach about him in Russia. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

We learn about various histories. He was touched on in “History of the America’s” in International History. I remember it was interesting these two great men were in Office at the same time.

I think that was just a myth spread by his opponents.

It was the result of a different measuring system.
They did a lot during Napoleon's Regime. Check out metric time.

Well, I mean Madison served a full term and multiple presidents served less than him so.

I think it's about height, not length of rule
