37th President of the United States

Richard M. Nixon was born 100 years ago today in a small house in Yorba Linda, California.

He went on to live a HUGE life: He fought in World War 2, he became a Congressman, a Senator, Vice President, and President of the United States, among other accomplishments.

Best known for the Watergate scandal that led to his resignation in 1974, there is much more to know about the 37th President.

We recommend you watch The Presidents: Richard Nixon from American Experience by PBS. It’s a great place to start.
