Take the men whose portraits currently appear on the $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100 bills, and place them in order from oldest (born first) to youngest.

Here is the SOLUTION.

THE SOLUTION:

Statesman Ben Franklin is the oldest of the bunch, born way back in 1706. The whole list:

1706 - Benjamin Franklin ($100)
1732 - George Washington ($1)
1743 - Thomas Jefferson ($2)
1755 - Alexander Hamilton ($10)
1767 - Andrew Jackson ($20)
1809 - Abraham Lincoln ($5)
1822 - Ulysses S. Grant ($50)
