A shorter, humorous list

  1. Dolly Madison, for rescuing George Washington’s portrait from the White House while her husband James fled burning D.C. during the War of 1812.
  2. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, for evacuating most of our Pacific fleet to avoid the bombing of Pearl Harbor which he probably knew about in advance.
  3. Andrew Johnson, for standing up against a politicized impeachment while denying that he was drunk during Lincoln’s second inauguration.
  4. Samuel Adams, for thinly disguising himself as an American Indian and then dumping a fortune-worth of tea into Boston harbor as a political protest, and even getting away with it not only with respect to the king but historians too.
  5. Jurors in the Salem Witch Trials, whose unjust verdicts showed how the justice system need significant reforms in order to protect the accused.
