    There were eight men from Ohio who became the President of the United States. Warren G. Harding He was the first president to ride to his inauguration in an automobile and the first president to address America on the radio. William Howard Taft In addition to President John F. Kennedy, Taft is the only other president who is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. William Henry Harrison gave the longest inaugural speech of any U.S. President with a total of 8,445 words. Unfortunately, he was the first to die in office, serving only one month, the shortest term of any president. Rutherford B. Hayes As a child, he won elementary school contests in spelling. Educated at Kenyon College in Ohio, he graduated from Harvard Law School and also served three terms as Governor of Ohio. Benjamin Harrison attended Miami University in Ohio, becoming a lawyer, military leader and Senator. He was the grandson of William Henry Harrison and the first president to use electricity in the White House. James A. Garfield was considered a great orator. He could write in Latin with one hand while writing in Greek with the other hand. He was the last president born in a log cabin and assassinated in a Washington railroad station. William McKinley became the 25th President of the United States when America was involved in the Spanish American War. He was the third President to be assassinated. McKinley always wore a red carnation in the lapel of his coat or suit and in his honor, the scarlet carnation was adopted as the state flower of Ohio. Ulysses S. Grant was 39 years old when he volunteered to fight for the Union in the Civil War. A graduate of West Point, he also served in The Mexican War under General Zachary Taylor.
