US Involvement in Vietnam happened in 1973 under Richard Nixon. Also, this quiz doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason regarding the events happening when the president was actually in office. The "Father of the Constitution" is not an event (War of 1812 would be better for that particular president!) while having "The Monroe Doctrine" as an event for Monroe is also odd. It would be better to put "The Era of Good Feelings," or something such as that. With Washington, Grant, Madison, and Eisenhower you name events that happen before their presidency. It would be better to come up with events that happened during their terms in office...for Eisenhower for instance you could put "End of Korean War," and for Grant you could put "Reconstruction." Other than that and the fact that you should be able to enter each Roosevelt separately (such as, if you put in Theodore Roosevelt specifically, as I did, you should not get FDR too) this was a good quiz.

The quiz is excellent as it is.
