There are several mistakes here.

Harding was not present for the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919, which officially ended World War I.

Millard Fuller, not Jimmy Carter, was the founder of Habitat for Humanity.

Gerald Ford was the only president who was never elected to be either president or vice president but several vice presidents were never elected president (Tyler, Fillmore, Johnson, Arthur).

In regards to Harding: Wikipedia says "On July 2, 1921, U.S. President Warren G. Harding signed the Knox–Porter Resolution, which had been passed by the U.S. Congress and ended the state of war between the U.S. and Germany, Austria and Hungary, further setting the stage for bilateral peace treaties."https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S.%E2%80%93German_Peace_Treaty_(1921)

Thanks. I switched the Carter hint to supported HFH instead of founded.

The Ford hint remains the same because this quiz is not about Vice Presidents. Just Presidents. Thanks.

Additional error - Truman, not Eisenhower, ended segregation in the armed forces.

Thanks. The caveat was "initiated" not that he was president when de-segregation happened. Since it seems people won't read that hint closely I may choose another one.
