The third Monday in February is set apart as President’s Day in honor of the birthdays of our two most famous presidents, Washington and Lincoln. However, this is just one of several President’s Days in our homeschool. As we work our way through American History this school year, we study the presidents as their birthdays show up on the special days calendar. Below are the links we go to each time we study a president.
