Today is officially George Washington’s birthday. He was born in 1732. He served his presidential term from April 30, 1789 through March 4, 1797.
For many years President’s Day was just for George Washington’s birthday. President Nixon stated President’s Day should be an honor to all past presidents.
President Lincoln’s official birthday was February 12th and although it is assumed President’s Day is to honor both Lincoln and Washington’s birthday, it is written to be just for Washington.
In either case, Happy Birthday to you President Washington. May we honor you today and wonder just what you would think of how this country is today.
“The constitution is the guide which I never will abandon.” – George Washington
