11 Portraits Of Young US Presidents

Posted on Other Stuff 362

Running for the US president is no beauty pageant. Presidents are remembered for what they accomplished while in the office as the most powerful people in the world. What we often forget though is that just like us, once these guys were regular dudes, too. Even the presidents got to enjoy their youth before they became the men whose names would be forever written in the History books – shocking, I know. And, may we add, some of the U.S. presidents were fricking handsome too.

So ladies and gentlemen, without further ado… the presidents of the United States captured at a young age.
