U.S. Inside/Background

President's Day

Until the mid-1970s, the February 22nd birthday of George Washington, hero of the Revolutionary War and first president of the United States, was a national holiday.
In addition, the February 12th birthday of Abraham Lincoln, the president during the Civil War, was a holiday in most states.
The two days have been joined, and the holiday has been expanded to embrace all past presidents.
It is celebrated on the third Monday in February.
