On Martin Van Buren’s birthday, Constitution Daily wants your opinion on which historic president sported the best facial hair ever.

And it is a legitimate historic question, since a sitting U.S. president hasn’t worn sideburns, a beard, a mustache, or muttonchops in 1912, when William Howard Taft left office.

There is some debate over which leader was the first to adopt the 19th century trend of facial hair. John Quincy Adams and Van Buren are shown in images after their presidency with considerably big sideburns. (Constitution Daily)
