U.S President to be writing Greek and Latin Simultaneously


Right before reading this fact, I actually tried it by myself since I am a bilingual but I had a hard time writing couple letters from both alphabets. 

FACT: The 20th, U.S President James A. Garfield (1881) who was able to write Greek and Latin simultaneously!! 
Wait! That's not all..
FACT: President James A. Garfield was the first president who used two languages -- English and German in his presidential campaign
