Celebrate! Presidents' Day Outline of U.S. Government: The Powers of the Presidency President George W. Bush Inaugural Addresses Until the mid-1970s, the February 22 birthday of George Washington, hero of the Revolutionary War and first president of the United States, was a national holiday. In addition, the February 12 birthday of Abraham Lincoln, the president during the Civil War (1861-1865), was a holiday in most states. In the 1970s, Congress declared that in order to honor all past presidents of the United States, a single holiday, to be called Presidents' Day, would be observed on the third Monday in February. In many states, however, the holiday continues to be known as George Washington's birthday. See also:

Dwight D. Eisenhower Bringing to the Presidency his prestige as commanding general of the victorious forces in Europe during World War II, Dwight D. Eisenhower obtained a truce in Korea and worked incessantly during his two terms to ease the tensions of the Cold War. He pursued the moderate policies of "Modern Republicanism," pointing out as he left office, "America is today the strongest, most influential, and most productive nation in the world." Born in Texas in 1890, brought up in Abilene, Kansas, Eisenhower was the third of seven sons. He excelled in sports in high school, and received an appointment to West Point. Stationed in Texas as a second lieutenant, he met Mamie Geneva Doud, whom he married in 1916. In his early Army career, he excelled in staff assignments, serving under Generals John J. Pershing, Douglas MacArthur, and Walter Krueger. After Pearl Harbor, General George C. Marshall called him to Washington for a war plans assignment. He commanded the Allied Forces landing in North Africa in November 1942; on D-Day, 1944, he was Supreme Commander of the troops invading France.

NATIONAL CELEBRATIONS Holidays in the United States
Photograph from Digital Stock
Americans share three national holidays with many countries: Easter Sunday, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day. Easter , which falls on a spring Sunday that varies from year to year, celebrates the Christian belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. For Christians, Easter is a day of religious services and the gathering of family. Many Americans follow old traditions of coloring hard-boiled eggs and giving children baskets of candy. On the next day, Easter Monday, the president of the United States holds an annual Easter egg hunt on the White House lawn for young children. Christmas Day , December 25, is another Christian holiday; it marks the birth of the Christ Child. Decorating houses and yards with lights, putting up Christmas trees, giving gifts, and sending greeting cards have become traditions even for many non-Christian Americans. New Year's Day , of course, is January 1. The celebration of this holiday begins the night before, when Americans gather to wish each other a happy and prosperous coming year.
UNIQUELY AMERICAN HOLIDAYS Eight other holidays are uniquely American (although some of them have counterparts in other nations). For most Americans, two of these stand out above the others as occasions to cherish national origins: Thanksgiving and the Fourth of July.

Liberty! The American Revolution
(1997; six, one-hour segments, produced by Minnesota Public Television and Middlemarch films). The Hildebrands’ music figures in each segment of this successful documentary, and they provided the ideas and raw musical materials that resulted in the soundtrack CD (Sony Classical SK 63216). While bigger-name musicians Yo-Yo Ma, James Taylor, Wynton Marsalis and Mark O’Connor were brought in late in the process, David and Ginger’s music from Over the Hills and Far Away and Music of the Charles Carroll Family intermingles throughout. This film continues to be broadcast here in the U.S. and in Europe, and over 50,000 copies of the video set have sold to date. Re-Discovering George Washington (scheduled for July 4, 2002; 90 minutes). Producer Michael Pack (Manifold Productions) worked very closely with David to assimilate this soundtrack from a variety of musical genres. While leaning heavily on the Hildebrands’ 1999 release
