How "His Highness" George Washington Became "Mr. President"

During a recent conversation about history, the subject was mentioned of how the term "Mr. President" came to be. That sent me to Google, thinking it would make a great topic for CQ, and my search yielded this amusing and engaging article, which includes a bit about the origins of President's Day:
How 'His Highness' George Washington Became 'Mr. President'
My apologies for simply putting the link here for your perusal ... I just returned this evening from a youth conference out of state and am on a very tight book deadline ... doubly my apologies for the site and surrounding subject matter. I hope our dear readers will enjoy, regardless!

  1. I love the article in the link.

    No apology needed for sending us there. Most of us are perfectly capable of ignoring the surrounding materials.

    The internet is full of objectionables. Those are battles for which I have neither time nor energy.

    1. Thank you, Judith! I thought it a fascinating tidbit of history, and one I'd known nothing about before last week. :-)
