The Very First’s 285th!

For all you history buffs out there, and pretty much for anyone who calls the USA home, the first ever President of the United States, George Washington, would be celebrating his 285th birthday today! He was born in 1732 and many historians still celebrate his birthday!

Technically, up until the 1980s February 22nd was celebrated as a national holiday but later changed to celebrate all of the former and current POTUSs on what we now observe as “President’s Day” on the third Monday of the month.

Here are some awesome books about our 1st president and some other pretty awesome Presidents that made history . These books are jam-packed with some facts that you probably know and others that might surprise you. Check them out below!
