Surprisingly, of the 56, only two: John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. They both also served as vice president before their presidential terms—another signer, Elbridge Gerry, became a vice president but never reached the presidency.

The rest of the signers weren’t slouches, mind you, as they held various positions in government. Benjamin Franklin was among them, as was Benjamin Harrison, the father of eventual president William Henry Harrison.
