Presidents Like You've Never Seen Them Before

Created on Feb 15, 2016 by Kathy Pinna
While John Hanson (President of the United States in Congress Assembled) is considered by some historians as the first President of the U.S., General George Washington is generally recognized as President #1 since he began his term after the Constitution went into effect. From George Washington to Donald Trump, there have been 45 U.S. Presidents sworn into office, all men.

These are photos of Presidents in circumstances that you may not have seen before - from family gatherings to FDR getting ready to mount a horse.

First celebrated as George Washington’s birthday (on Feb 22nd), President’s Day became the name of this holiday around 1971. We honor all of the men who had the courage to take on such a daunting job.
