2. The Oath of Office is usually administered on the East Portico of the Capitol Building. How many Presidents have not only taken their oaths in locations other than the Capitol building and outside of Washington D.C.? and can you name at least 3 of them?
3. The Daily Double. How many Presidents appear on both lists? and can you name 3 of them?
