Who was the last president who could say he knew all the presidents before him?

Any president could say that. I assume you're asking who was the last president of the United States who could truthfully say that.The first former president to die was George Washington, who died in 1799.The last president to be born before that, and who could at least potentially have known Washington, was James Buchanan, who was born in 1791.As far as I know, Buchanan did not actually knowWashington. The last President that I'm reasonably certain knew Washington personally was John Quincy Adams, son of founding father (and former president himself) John Adams, though it's at least potentially true of all presidents before Buchanan except for Pierce and Fillmore, both of whom had not yet been born when Washington died... though a couple others are questionable; Polk, for example, was only 4 in 1799.

Who that was famous became a president of the US?

Being "famous" isn't an absolute requirement for becoming President of the US, but it's safe to say that everyone so far who has become President has been at least fairly well-known prior.Possibly the least famous person who eventually became president was James K. Polk. When his opponent in the General Election (Henry Clay) heard who he would be running against, he asked "Who is James K. Polk?" (He wasn't really all THAT obscure; he had, after all, been Governor of Tennessee, but it is true that he had gone to the nominating convention hoping to be nominated for Vice-President, as he knew that he wasn't considered one of the front-runners for the Presidential nomination.)

Should you capitalize president?

What is James Madison known for?

James Madison was America's fourth president, but before that, he had a distinguished career as a legislator and a statesman. Before he was elected president, he helped to frame the Virginia state Constitution, served in the Continental Congress, and was a leader in the Virginia Assembly. He was a strong advocate for the ratification of the U.S. Constitution. While serving in Congress, he was a major contributor to (and some sources say he wrote) what became the Bill of Rights. He also served as Secretary of State under President Thomas Jefferson, during which he supervised the Louisiana Purchase.
