I liked it better when we celebrated Lincoln’s birthday and Washington’s birthday separately.  Remember this man, he saved the Union.

To understand America, you need to understand the Gettysburg Address:  Vanderleun.

My childhood school days were spent in the state of illinois, before there was a President’s Day holiday. We always had Lincoln’s birthday off but never Washington’s birthday.

I appreciate people’s desire for occasional 3-day weekends, but we end up forgetting the reason for the holiday in the first place. Our two most revered presidents deserve a little thought.
