On Presidents Day, we honor the February birthdays of two of our most notable leaders — George Washington and Abraham Lincoln — as we recognize the others who have served in one of the most difficult offices in the world.
History.com says: "In its modern form, Presidents’ Day is used by many patriotic and historical groups as a date for staging celebrations, reenactments and other events. A number of states also require that their public schools spend the days leading up to Presidents’ Day teaching students about the accomplishments of the presidents, often with a focus on the lives of Washington and Lincoln."
As the accompanying YouTube video reminds us, we're up to 44 presidents now. Which one do you most admire?
