GOD BLESS AMERICA

by Irving Berlin. Released in 1939.

God bless America, land that I love
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with the light from above.

 

From the mountains to the prairies
To the oceans white with foam
God bless America, my home sweet home.

 

God bless America, land that I love
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with the light from above.

 

From the mountains to the prairies
To the oceans white with foam
God bless America, my home sweet home!

 

From the mountains to the prairies
To the oceans white with foam
God bless America, my home sweet home
God bless America, my home sweet home.

— America’s Favorite Patriotic Song


Happy President’s Day ! !

The day honors every U.S. President in the history of the country. 

A Brief History:
Origination: For years and years, Washington’s Birthday was celebrated on February 22nd every year, to honor the United States’ first president. Then In 1971, President Richard M. Nixon put the Uniform Monday Holiday Act into effect, moving a number of federal holidays to Mondays, and it vaguely established Presidents Day as the one to celebrate all of our commanders-in-chief.

Proximity of the Date: The day known as Presidents’ Day honors President Washington no specific U.S. President. But we all know that it is very close to Washington’s Birthday tomorrow and Lincoln’s Birthday which was just last week. It stated that the third Monday in every February would honor the holiday for Washington’s Birthday to always be on the same day every year. Then it was added to cover some of the state’s celebration to combine Washington’s Birthday and Lincoln’s Birthday together in order to make it one holiday. Later on, depending on your state’s laws, honors the first, third, sixteenth or all of the former Presidents of the United States.

Music Honoring the Presidents: Hail to the Chief” by James Sanderson is celebrated in times of honor, and “God Bless America” by Irving Berlin is the United State’s favorite patriotic song of all time.

Remarked Era After the Lincoln-Douglas Debates Including Becoming President: The popularity of the debates savored his eventual nomination by 1860 when Buchanan stepped down, and then succeeding to becoming the first to be elected as our 16th President in the Civil War era.

President’s Merits: The President usually has a very vast and incredibly humongous job to do. You can check out exactly what the President’s responsibilities are on my web page: How Government Works: Executive Branch – PART IV of Freedom For Which the Flag Stands Series
