621. Being a part of Britain until the Revolution, American witches and wizards were educated at Hogwarts. Most of the founding fathers, being upper class and able to afford a proper education, were at Hogwarts, with Jefferson, Franklin, and Adams being sorted into Ravenclaw. Controversially, Alexander Hamilton was placed into Slytherin along with Benedict Arnold. George Washington, naturally, was a Gryffindor while John Jay was a Hufflepuff and an early proponant of house-elf rights.
