This month is considered President’s month. Three former presidents have birthdays; Ronald Reagan – February 6, Abraham Lincoln – February 12 and George Washington – February 22.
We celebrate two of these birthdays on Monday February 18th. As we take this day to celebrate these birthdays, we also need to remember who these men are and what they stand for.
George Washington was an American general and commander in chief of the colonial armies in the American Revolution and subsequently first president of the United States (1789–97). Sometimes called the Father of this Country.
Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln successfully led the United States through its greatest constitutional, military, and moral crisis – the American Civil War – preserving the Union while ending slavery and promoting economic and financial modernization.
This month we celebrated the 102nd Birthday of Ronald Reagan. He was the 40th President of the United States. As president, Reagan implemented sweeping new political and economic initiatives. His supply-side economic policies, dubbed “Reaganomics”, advocated reducing tax rates to spur economic growth, controlling the money supply to reduce inflation, deregulation of the economy, and reducing government spending.
Remembering these great Statesmen shows us those great statesmen who led the way in the creation of this Great Country and the Founding Principles which guide us.
