George’s bath tub and Abe’s cottage

In honor of Presidents’ Day in the U.S.. which celebrates the February birthdays of both President George Washington and President Abraham Lincoln, here are some past posts about some not as well-known sites associated with these two famous leaders.

George Washington’s bath tub. Now I've seen everything... George Washington's bath tub where he "took the waters" in present-day Berkeley Springs, WV, oldest warm spring resort in the US... And supposedly they re-enact the bath every year. History people can be crazy!
