Until 1971, both February 12 and February 22 were observed as federal public holidays to honor the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln (February 12) and George Washington (February 22).
We honor all of the leaders who have served our country in good times and in bad. Take some time this Presidents' Day to learn more about these leaders.
