ABSTRACT
In this article the author explores the efforts of several historians, including Richard Brookhiser, David McCullough, and Ron Chernow, to collaborate with the journal in their efforts to initiate a legislative bill in the U.S. Congress to recognize February 22 as the birthdate of former U.S. President George Washington. The author notes the effort is aimed at restoring the historical significance of the date and undoing the commercialism that goes along with the President's Day Holiday.
