Trying to rank all the Presidents

A while ago I ranked modern Presidents (President Harry Truman through President Barack Obama). Today, I decided to expand on that by ranking all the Presidents. Or– more accurately– I’ll try to rank them. I say try because there are a lot of Presidents and I don’t know enough about all of them to provide an accurate rank. To compensate for that, I’ll break my rankings up into groups and one group will be the ones I don’t know much about. You can think of these Presidents as “replacement level” Presidents. Presidents ranked above them are Presidents above replacement level while Presidents ranked below them are Presidents below replacement level.
