Happy Presidents Day!
Presidents Day is a day to acknowledge the accomplishments of all of our presidents of the United States. Our country would not be where it is today without their contributions. Here our some facts you may have not known about some of our Presidents:
Presidents Day is celebrated on the third Monday in February, thanks to the 1968 Uniform Monday Holiday Act
It was established in 1885 in honor of President George Washington’s birthday
Washington’s birthday was actually on February 22, 1732 (this would be his 282nd birthday!)
Washington’s birthplace is a national monument and is located in Colonial Beach, VA
It is still officially called Washington’s Birthday by the federal government
The government debated renaming the holiday to Presidents Day to include President Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, but the proposal failed in committees
Lincoln’s birthday was actually on February 12, 1809 (this would be his 205th birthday!)
Lincoln’s birthplace is a national historical park and is located in Hodgenville, Kentucky
President Ulysses S. Grant established Yellowstone as the first national park
President Theodore Roosevelt has the most national parks named in his honor
