Tomorrow, Sunday the 22nd, is Mr. Washinton’s real birthday. I had celebrated his nominal calendar birthday in my previous Mr. Washington post. The US National Archives says:

George Washington was born in Virginia on February 11, 1731, according to the then-used Julian calendar. In 1752, however, Britain and all its colonies adopted the Gregorian calendar, which placed Washington’s birth on February 22, 1732.
