Presidents' Day in February is usually associated with George Washington born Feb. 22, 1732, and Abraham Lincoln born Feb. 12, 1809. However, there were two other United States Presidents who celebrated birthdays in February. President Ronald Reagan was born Feb. 6, 1911, and President William Henry Harrison whose birth date was Feb. 9, 1773.
At a recent meeting, the Nancy Ward Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution honored these Presidents with a factual display and mini cherry pies for each member.
The DAR “Daughters” are members of the largest service organization in the world for women with
