The "OK" item mentions (Andrew) Jackson and Martin Van Buren. Van Buren was vice president during Jackson's 2nd term, then was elected president in 1836 while still the sitting vice president, then lost re-election bid in 1840.

I knew about the "Ampersand" and that it had been part of the alphabet, at one time, but I didn't know about the rest of them. Very interesting! 😊
