How many people remember that Feb. 12 is Lincoln's birthday? Since the 1971 "federal monday holiday act" almost nobody remembers Lincoln's real birthday or that Feb. 22 is Washington's birthday. It's just another 3 day weekend.

How many people remember Washington was a slave holder that would sell slaves to the west indies to separate them from their families?

How many people remember that Lincoln only freed enslaved people in the confederate states and didnt even like Black people?



IMO neither are deserving of holidays.
