Everyone widely recognizes the face on the one-dollar bill. This founding father, military officer, and first President of the United States served from 1789 to 1797. He demonstrated outstanding leadership skills by leading the Continental Army to victory in the Revolutionary War and played a pivotal role in creating the U.S. Constitution, amongst numerous other notable achievements. It is not surprising that his image graces the currency of the nation.
On February 19th, of every year, people across the United States celebrate the birthday of George Washington. It is a day set aside to pay tribute to his immense contribution to the nation and to honor him as the first President of the United States
February is also recognized as a time to celebrate all presidents, not just the first. President’s Day is celebrated on the third Monday of February or February 19th, as an official federal holiday in most places in the U.S. This day is an opportunity to honor the lives of all presidents who have served the country, and it is a day off work and school for many.
February is a time to recognize and celebrate the contributions of all presidents who have played a pivotal role in shaping the country. From George Washington, the first president, to other presidents who have left an indelible mark on the nation, we pay tribute to the legacy they have left behind.
