28th President: Woodrow Wilson, 1913
Navy = 28 (Wilson was the 28th president)
Will son = Wilson
Bottom = 913 = 1913 became president
Would row = Woodrow
A country's navy was left by a dictator in his will to his son (Wilson). Giving the navy to his son was the last item at the bottom (913 = 1913) of the will.
Connect Wilson to Woodrow:
The son was so pleased he had inherited the big ships – before that, he would row (Woodrow), and it was hard work!
NOTE: The way Mammoth Memory remembers Woodrow is to think of how someone "would row" a boat.
