乔治.华盛顿,出生于1732222

美国人庆祝乔治华盛顿和亚伯拉罕林肯的生日,称之为「总统节」。虽然是「总统节」,习惯上都在华盛顿实际生日的前一个星期一庆祝。

从华盛顿出生以来已经很久了,你能确实指出他是哪一天出生的吗?这其中其实还有一段复杂的历史。

特别是华盛顿出生之后二十年,才有了我们今天所谓日历的东西,幸运的是,有人在信里留下了线索。


Americans celebrate George Washington's birthday, along with Abraham Lincoln's, on "President's Day." "President's Day," however, is observed the Monday before Washington's actual day of birth.

Fortunately, someone left a clue inside a letter.
