Six or seven presidents were probably born in a log cabin. Andrew Jackson was the first if he was born in a log cabin, but his place of birth is not known. A log cabin is a likely possibility but there were frame houses and he may been born in a wagon. James A. Garfield, the 20th President, was the last to be born in a log cabin. The others are Abraham Lincoln, Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore and James Buchanan,( I also have some doubts about Taylor's birthplace, but a log cabin seems likely if not certain.) Ulysses Grant's birthplace may have a log framework, but has board siding and is not a typical log cabin.
So, Jackson is doubtful, and so are Taylor and Grant. Why include them?
