Best Answer

James Garfield was the first US president known to be left-handed. There were probably others who were born left-handed but were forced to convert by their parents or teachers. I say this because Garfield was the 20th president. After him, 7 out of the next 23 were lefties.

James Garfield is the first to be noted as left-handed. (There used to be a stigma against lefties and children were forced to write with the right hand. I find it hard to believe that none of the first 19 presidents were left-handed when 7 of the next 23 are lefties. )
