Truckers and Presidents Day

Owner-Operators have always been a number of things from risk takers, entrepreneurs to even farmers.  What is not as well known is many of these traits are shared by some of our most beloved presidents as well. 

The History of Presidents Day
Presidents’ Day was established in 1885 to honor George Washington and is still officially called "Washington's Birthday" by the federal government! Celebrated the third Monday in every February, it traditionally is celebrated on February 22 Washington’s actual birthday. The holiday became popularly known as Presidents’ Day after it was moved as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act, an attempt to create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers. While several states still have individual holidays honoring the birthdays of Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other figures, Presidents’ Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents past and present.
