Presidents' Day History

The video above is great, but this article is better.  It describes how the day started as a tribute to George Washington (whose hayfield is where I teach - hence our name, Hayfield).  What is interesting that a DC store started calling it Presidents' Day and not Washington.  More for your students can be found here.   Thanks to Bill Chapman for the heads up on the story.
