President's Day

President's Day celebrates two US Presidents: George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. The Gale US History in Context is an excellent resource if you need to brush up on your knowledge of the Presidents.

From that database comes this tidbit: "HAD YOU KNOWN George Washington in 1774, you might have admired his skill as an Indian fighter, but you would not have predicted he would one day become his country's paragon of virtue." See more at this link.

Do you wonder how Nathaniel Hawthorne felt about Abraham Lincoln? See this link.
