Presidential QuotesIn Cryptography teasers, a phrase or expressions has been encoded in some way (frequently by replacing letters with other letters). You need to figure out the encoding method and then decode the message to find the answer.
The following cryptograms are quotes from past U.S. Presidents. Each letter stands for another, and no letter can stand for two (ex. 'A' cannot stand for 'B' and 'C')
