LINCOLNS' BIRTHDAY


February 12 connotes the birthday of the known Great Emancipator and the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. As we know, Abraham Lincoln was born on 1809 in Hardin County. Lincolns’ birthday was remembered and celebrated on the actual date of his birthday, which was February 12, however during early part of 1970s, { If i am not mistaken, 1971} Abraham Lincoln’s birthday had been combined with George Washington’s birthday and had considered it as one holiday. This has been referred to as Presidents’ Day which is celebrated on the 3rd Monday of February. This becomes the day dedicated to honor all of the Presidents of the United States. Lincolns’ birthday is a legal holiday in some states like Illinois, Connecticut, California, Missouri, The Big Apple, which is New York and Indiana.


Well, here is to salute to one of the most respected and celebrated president of the United States not just because of his great deeds as one of the president of the United States but also because of his major contribution in abolishing slavery during his time.
