Supplementary notes

*Grover Cleveland is officially recorded as the 22nd and 24th president of the United States, and has therefore been included twice.

While Republican Abraham Lincoln and Democrat Andrew Johnson ran together on the ticket of the "National Union Party", this was simply a rebranding of the Republican Party and was done to show political unity during the American Civil War; therefore Lincoln has been counted here as a Republican president, and Johnson as a Democratic president.
