We probably see more of this one -
- and it is true that a dollar doesn't go as far as it once did! :)
George Washington was the first president of the United States, a position he wasn't really excited about holding. He was happiest when he was at his beloved Mount Vernon.
In only four years, Abraham Lincoln brought about much positive change for the United States, though it was a time of war and turmoil.
Lincoln's Gettysburg Address was only two minutes long, and he had no idea his words would be remembered for all the succeeding years afterwards. Sadly, he was not to live long enough to really be able to evaluate his presidency.
Lincoln's birthday was on February 12, and Washington's birthday comes on February 22. Today we honor them and their accomplishments for our nation.
