US President Poems ~ Founding Fathers

Welcome to the US President poems page of ClassroomPoems.com. The first section consists of five of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. These are the men who gathered to plan and fight the Revolutionary War and drafted the Bill of Rights and the Constitution of the United States. Without their efforts, the United States would not be what it is today. The first of the president poems is about General George Washington, a man who was so well loved by his new country, that some thought he should be king!

21st Century US President Poems

Now we enter the names of presidents, all of whom are still living. These are the presidents of the new millennium. In the case of Bill Clinton, he had just one year of his term in the year 2000, and an election year at that! However, at the time, he was of a younger generation and did say on the stump that he wanted to lead the country into the 21st century. Just as in the case of the change from the Founding Fathers to the 19th Century, voters once again chose a familiar name and family to lead the country. In this case, it was George W. Bush.
