Program Planned At Andrew Johnson Site
For Presidents Day

The Andrew Johnson National Historic Site will observe Presidents Day with a special program on Monday, Feb. 17, at noon at the Andrew Johnson Visitor Center.

The Visitor Center is located at 201 N. College Street in Historic Downtown Greeneville.

Presidents Day has been set aside to commemorate all those who have held what 17th President Andrew Johnson called "the highest office in the gift of a free people," according to a news release from the National Park Service.

While generally known for a number of years as Presidents Day, the federal holiday is still officially listed as Washington's Birthday.

The program on Feb. 17 at the Andrew Johnson Visitor Center will focus on the history of this observance, and will explain, among other things, the reason for the confusion surrounding its name, the release says.

The presentation by Park Guide Daniel Luther will include slides illustrating the various traditional observances associated with Presidents Day, including its connection with the Purple Heart medal.

Visitors will also learn of Andrew Johnson's part in establishing one major tradition, still performed each year on Feb. 22, the actual date of George Washington's birth, the release says.

For more information about Andrew Johnson National Historic Site or the Presidents Day program, please contact Chief Ranger Jim Small at 423-639-3711.

The Andrew Johnson National Historic Site is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily except on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day.
