Trivia Question: The Petticoat Affair was a minor political scandal that sent the cabinet of what American President into chaos?
Answer: Andrew Jackson
The Petticoat Affair was inspired by puritanical moral standards. Many members of Jackson’s cabinet mocked and ostracized Secretary of War John Eaton and his wife Peggy over perceived moral failings in their marriage. This led to furious division and caused almost all involved cabinet members to eventually resign.

I also enjoy reading biographies, non-fiction, and fiction (fantasy novels). My other hobby is board games and in my opinion there is nothing better than a family board game night!
