You may be under the mistaken impression that it's "Presidents' Day." It is not. In 1885, Chester Arthur signed Washington's birthday into federal law--perhaps in the Dubya-like wish that he might also one day be so exalted. (Unlikely.) Later, commerce took over, and department stores implemented the more egalitarian "Presidents' Day," which has, without the imprimatur of law, supplanted Arthur's writ.
So let us put aside Abe (and Reagan and Harrison) and raise a pint to the humble general/brewer, who would have abhorred the honor of a federal holiday (too monarchist). How he would have felt to know that official recognition of his birthday had been supplanted by the dictates of commerce we can only guess about. Maybe not so bad--it's a triumph of the people, sort of.
Happy 275th, Mr. President.
