About This Quiz

Are you a fan of U.S. presidential history? Do you know all about President John F. Kennedy, his administration and his family? Take this How Stuff Works quiz to find out how much you really know about one of the greatest presidents of all time.

John F. Kennedy, affectionately called JFK, remains one of the most popular presidents in U.S. history. More than that, polls have named him one of the most admired individuals in the world, after Gandhi and Mother Teresa. Yet, as selfless as JFK is known to have been - he is the only U.S. president to have been awarded a Purple Heart - his lifetime and his history have also been plagued by rumors that he had frequent extramarital affairs and an overuse of medications for multiple medical conditions that may have clouded his judgement during more than one important occasion. Still, history remembers JFK as a staunch supporter of human rights and fair domestic and international foreign policies. Most history buffs find it a shame that JFK did not live long enough to complete his presidency; he may have changed the future in more ways than he already did.

Let's get started to find out if you can ace this quiz about JFK.
