Is Lincoln’s birthday a public holiday?

Abraham Lincoln may be the greatest of all US presidents. He ended slavery, won the Civil War, and ensured that the United States would remain united in the modern world. His face is printed on the five-dollar bill and stamped on the penny. The Lincoln Memorial is one of the nation’s iconic sites. But Lincoln’s Birthday on Feb. 12 is not a national holiday, and it never has been.
