Mount Rushmore honors our democracy

Mount Rushmore has heads of four presidents, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.

This holiday was originally created in 1885 to recognize the birthday of  President George Washington on February 22.   In 1971 the holiday, under the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, was changed to the third Monday in February and now honors all presidents.
