Hi guys. This month we have celebrated the birthdays of President George Washington the first president of the United States -born February 22nd; and President Abraham Lincoln – born February 12th. He was the 16th president of our country. President Washington was leader of the country during and right after the Revolutionary War You can watch a little bit about the Revolutionary War by clicking the link above. President Lincoln lead the country during another terrible war: The Civil War Click this link to find out more about the Civil War. Both of these presidents loved our country and did what they thought was right to help it out. That made them patriots.
You and I, too, are patriots when we care and love this great country; and do the best that we can to help it and all of the people who live here to be happy here. We can do that by first of all reading and learning about it in school, and then when you get to the right age, vote on the elections we have in this great country. Hey, that’s a good way for patriots to begin.
