The Mother of Presidents? Virginia counts eight U.S. presidents who were born in the state: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, Zachary Taylor, and Woodrow Wilson. Virginians also played an influential role as Americans pushed west into the frontier, north into the cities and east across the Atlantic Ocean to the West African coast. Three presidents of Liberia were Virginians, and the two-time president of the Republic of Texas was Virginia-born Sam Houston.
