Known as the Father of Scouting, Robert Baden-Powell (aka First Baron Baden-Powell and Lord Baden-Powell), was born on Feb. 22, 1857 in Paddington, London, England.
The British Army Officer and writer founded both the Boy Scouts and the Girl Guides.
“Show me a poorly uniformed troop and I’ll show you a poorly uniformed leader.”
“Be Prepared… the meaning of the motto is that a scout must prepare himself by previous thinking out and practicing how to act on any accident or emergency so that he is never taken by surprise.” — Robert Baden-Powell

President’s Day is so named in honor of all the former United States Presidents.
Up until 1968, the birth anniversaries of Presidents Abraham Lincoln (Feb. 12) and George Washington (Feb. 22) were celebrated in various states as holidays.
President Lyndon B. Johnson established President’s Day in 1968.
On June 28, 1968, President Lyndon B. Johnson changed all that when he signed the Monday Holiday Law. This law established Monday observances of Washington’s Birthday as well as various other holidays such as Columbus Day, regardless of the traditional dates. The new law went into effect in January 1971.
The third Monday in February was chosen as Washington’s Birthday and a legal holiday. It has since been renamed President’s Day.
