What Are We Celebrating on Monday After All?

Washington's Secret War By Thomas FlemingHappy Friday, everyone! As we venture into the long weekend, you may be wondering about the history of this national holiday. Well, Kenneth C. Davis, our resident President scholar and author of Don’t Know Much About the American Presidents, wrote a blog post in honor of the occasion. I was surprised to find that we’re not actually celebrating Presidents Day. Rather, we’re celebrating the birthday of a President, George Washington. To learn more about how this holiday came to be, check out Kenneth’s blog post here.

Speaking of George Washington, we’d like to remind everyone of two great titles on our list, George Washington's War: The Saga of the American Revolution by Robert Leckie and Washington's Secret War: The Hidden History of Valley Forge  by Thomas Fleming. Click on the links to begin browsing these books on our first President!
