Welcome in the WikiProject U.S. Presidents!
If they were a president—even if only briefly—we'll work on their article.

There have been 43 presidents over the history of the United States (Grover Cleveland served twice but is counted once here). We cover all of their biographies, and six more articles relating to the president.

Goal[edit]

The goal of this project is to edit articles on Presidents of the United States of America, and bring them to A-Class or (preferably) Featured Article standard. It is also to expand Wikipedia's knowledge of U.S. Presidents.

Naming conventions[edit]

When making a new project template, use these naming guidelines: Template:USP-Description

Note that all of that is CaSe SeNsItIvE. Replace "Description" with a word that tells what your template does, like {{USP-Article}}. Userboxes have their own naming conventions, and we really don't need more than one.
