However, if you ask people what the holiday is about, you might be surprised by some of the answers. For instance, which President is being remembered? By the name, you might think it is all Presidents of the United States. The apostrophe at the end of the word would indicate that its meaning is plural – as in more than one President. However, some people spell it President’s Day, meaning one President. It’s all very confusing. Here are the answers to some perplexing questions on this national holiday.

Best U.S. Presidents

Here are the choices for the best five United States presidents.  Most people have a pre-conceived notion that Abraham Lincoln should be right on top.  I don’t think so.  The man was hated as a president in his time.  Note: he was assassinated.  He did a lot of unpopular things and all of them can’t be blamed directly on his presidency, but he certainly wasn’t the person we remember.  Similarly, FDR is famous for being the person that brought us out of the Great Depression and led us in WW2.  He served 4 terms as a US President, but I argue that he really didn’t do anything that Herbert Hoover hadn’t already planned to do, didn’t really stop the unemployment rate, and if WW2 hadn’t have happened, he wouldn’t have got us out of the Depression. 

Below are my best five.  See if you agree! If you don’t, tell me about it.
