Our Presidents by Winifred Sackville Stoner, Jr.

(A jingle to help recall the order of Presidents from George Washington – Woodrow Wilson)

George Washington, Adams and Jefferson three
First rulers of Uncle Sam’s land of the free:
Then Madison, Monroe and Adams again
All clever and upright and good honest men;
The Jackson, Van Buren and Harrison first,
Tyler and Polk whose terms were so curst
By war with the Mexicans who lost in the fray –
Then Taylor and Fillmore and Pierce held their sway.
Buchanan and Lincoln, Johnson and Grant,
Then Hayes, martyred Garfield, despiser of cant,
Arthur and Cleveland, Harrison (Ben)
McKinley the martyr, beloved by all men;
Then most energetic and strenuous Teddy
And plump William Taft for a second term ready
When Wilson was placed in this nation’s great chair
And promised to always rule wisely and fair.

President’s Day is a federal holiday celebrated on the third Monday of February. Though the holiday is intended to celebrate only George Washington’s birthday (his real birthday is February 22).









Did you know that, technically, today is called Washington’s Birthday (here in Virginia it’s “George Washington Day”) and not President’s day. INTERESTING.

But, colloquially, it’s Presidents Day, and honors Washington and Lincoln, so that’s what we’re doing today!
