NOTE:
1. F—Federalist; DR—Democratic-Republican; D—Democratic; W—Whig; R—Republican; U—Union.
2. Religious affiliation at election. Several presidents changed religions during their lifetimes.
3. No party for first election. The party system in the U.S. made its appearance during Washington's first term.
4. Died in office.
5. Assassinated in office.
6. The Republican National Convention of 1864 adopted the name Union Party. It renominated Lincoln for president; for vice president it nominated Johnson, a War Democrat. Although frequently listed as a Republican vice president and president, Johnson undoubtedly considered himself strictly a member of the Union Party. When that party broke apart after 1868, he returned to the Democratic Party.
7. Johnson was not a professed church member; however, he admired the Baptist principles of church government.
8. Second nonconsecutive term.
9. Resigned Aug. 9, 1974.
