Senator John Heinz History Center
President’s Day has historically been about patriotism and celebratory eating. Originally a day to mark the birthday of America’s first President, George Washington, this holiday was changed in 1968 to include all great American Presidents and combine Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson who had their own days.
