    The only United States President that was a former P.O.W. is Andrew Jackson. He was a young teenager during the Revolutionary War & was taken prisoner by the British.

    2 later Presidents were POWs. George Washington during the French and Indian War and Andrew Jackson during the US Revolution. Millard Fillmore as a young man was captured by pirates - not quite POW status.

    Only one about grammar: commander-in-chiefs? How about commanders-in-chief?

    Very good question , but isn't it obvious that NO sitting president ever was a POW , and many perhaps were improsened at one time , or another ? I did Not WIKI The correct answer you may want so looking forward to hearing More Scuttlebutt about it from someone Not drinking Heiniken , or my brother who won the War of the Revenue Cutter Service in the early 1800's as he puts it when he feels "Talky " .

    I enjoyed the fun facts about our Presidents. We, sometimes, think of them as super human when in fact they have lives before and after serving our people.
