As celebrated on the third Monday in February each year, Presidents’ Day is yet again upon us.

This is often the time of year students across the country study U.S. Presidents, especially Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, both of whom have birthdays celebrated in February. Luckily, we have revamped our Presidents’ pages in time for the holiday, so whether you’re a student or adult, you can more easily buff up on American history.
