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

Lincoln is a close runner-up for that title

Roosevelt’s birthplace is a national historic site and is located in New York City, NY

Adams National Historical Park was the birthplace of two presidents: John Adams and John Quincy Adams

The most recent presidential birthplace added to the National Park System belonged to William Jefferson Clinton

There are 35 parks named after American Presidents, and one park that celebrates four of them (but it’s named after a New York attorney)
