Hurt and Heal is a game we played at school in Marseilles before computers were invented. It helped us learn history. We used French Kings & Presidents but most of this forum is American so I thought we could try American Presidents instead.

Each player can HURT and HEAL one President each day and if you feel like it you can add one sentence to explain why.

Here's our starting position.


George Washington +10
John Adams +10
Thomas Jefferson +10
James Madison +10
James Monroe +10
John Quincy Adams +10
Andrew Jackson +10
Martin Van Buren +10
William Henry Harrison +10
John Tyler +10
James Knox Polk +10
Zachary Taylor +10
Millard Fillmore +10
Franklin Pierce +10
James Buchanan +10
Abraham Lincoln +10
Andrew Johnson +10
Ulysses Simpson Grant +10
Rutherford Birchard Hayes +10
James Abram Garfield +10
Chester Alan Arthur +10
Grover Cleveland +10
Benjamin Harrison +10
Grover Cleveland +10
William McKinley +10
Theodore Roosevelt +10
William Howard Taft +10
Woodrow Wilson +10
Warren Gamaliel Harding +10
Calvin Coolidge +10
Herbert Clark Hoover +10
Franklin Delano Roosevelt +10
Harry S. Truman +10
Dwight David Eisenhower +10
John Fitzgerald Kennedy +10
Lyndon Baines Johnson +10
Richard Milhous Nixon +10

So, my choices should be obvious to ATS'ers... Woodrow Wilson for allowing the Federal Reserve (even though he regretted his decision later) and JFK for attempting to stand up to the CIA.

Hurt - Abe Lincoln suspended Habeous Corpus and enacted forced conscription of soldiers.
Heal - Andrew Jackson fought the global elitists of his day and killed the Central Bank

Opps sorry Auto. I only planned on copying the list, not the comments. My mistake.
