Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President of the United States, was literally born on the Fourth of July, to farmer parents in central Vermont. In the summer of 1927, while The White House was under renovation, he escaped the bugs and heat of DC for a game lodge in South Dakota. The trout fishing hooked him and this wilderness-loving president extended his stay from three weeks to three months. He was a fine wingshot, too, and can be seen here with his double gun on a 1928 Christmas holiday to Sapelo Island, Georgia. Hunting alongside the first lady he killed turkey, pheasant, and quail.
