Some historical facts
February in America is a “harvest” month for holidays, sometimes unusual ones: Groundhog Day, New Year, according to the Eastern calendar; Valentine’s Day, Kindness Day. Along with them, Americans celebrate several national historical dates this month. The first of these is National Liberty Day, the anniversary of the signing of the Congressional Resolution to abolish slavery. This event is associated with the name of Abraham Lincoln, whose birthday falls on the 12th. America’s first president, George Washington, was born on February 22.
Americans have been celebrating Washington’s birthday since the end of the 18th century. He won popular recognition in the War of Independence and cemented it in the presidency. This day was not an official holiday, but balls and festivities were held in honor of it. In 1885, it became nationwide.
Washington was not only the first President of the United States, but also a very significant and respected personality. However, in the middle of the 19th century, another historical figure appeared – Abraham Lincoln, who extinguished the confrontation between the North and the South, eliminated slavery, rallied the country, and became a national hero for many Americans. His birthday was unofficially celebrated by the population of many states.
This holiday is one of two days of the year when free access to the Library of Congress opens. Here is stored a draft law on the abolition of slavery, written by the hand of A. Lincoln.
