Lincoln's Birthday (Traditional)

Although since rolled into the common "Presidents Day" national holiday, Lincoln's actual birthday of February 12 was celebrated as such for decades.

The holiday was first recognized in 1866, when both houses of Congress convened to commemorate the assassinated President.
