For Presidents’ Day, We Made You Some Pages

Presidents' Day is celebrated on the third Monday of February each year, and to celebrate this year, we've revamped our Presidents' pages.

The official seal of the Executive Office of President of the United States

As celebrated on the third Monday in February each year, Presidents’ Day is yet again upon us.

This is often the time of year students across the country study U.S. Presidents, especially Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, both of whom have birthdays celebrated in February. Luckily, we’ve revamped our Presidents’ pages in time for the holiday, so whether you’re a student or adult, you can more easily buff up on American history.
