Best Answer

I checked from Buchanan to Polk and can safely assume that Lincoln was the youngest of all presidents before him. Johnson is also older than Lincoln; however, Grant and Hayes belong to an entirely younger generation. So I can say that the 15 presidents before Lincoln plus the one president (Johnson) after Lincoln would be: 16 presidents.
