Don't underestimate "The Last of the Cocked Hats."
James Monroe might be the most experienced and least appreciated president ever. I'll do my best to honor the overlooked memory of the fifth president with this list of ten things he loved.
From a young age, James Monroe yearned for military prestige. He found it, serving under George Washington in the Battle of Trenton. Wounded and nearly killed, he got a quick promotion to captain. Unfortunately, captains had to recruit their own soldiers back then and he fell far short of his squad goals.
