Hi Ander. Nice quiz. I got everything except for his wife's name (was trying to remember from the miniseries but failed), the party he joined after the DRs (tried all sorts of different variations and got *really* close... darn it), his VP (d'oh! Should have known!), his place of burial (ditto! That one really makes me feel dumb. I guess Braintree, Boston, Washington, and many other places before giving up)

I also wrote a longer response to your comment on my quiz here, several years after the fact. Enjoy, if possible.

I hadn’t taken this one for a while so I thought I’d try it again and couldn’t understand why I was doing so miserably and it wasn’t taking my answers. Just before time ran out I realized it was the one on John Quincy Adams and not his father. Sigh. I read your reply to my comment on the other quiz and although I like reggae, no Kbop or big bands so I will check out the other songs.
