Which American Presidents were heroes? I don’t know much on this subject, being an Australian-educated person. I’ve heard of the big ones and know a little about them, but it wasn’t until I wrote about FDR recently that I realised how little I knew. With Presidents Day happening, I figured I’d look at some more to see where I could find heroic attributes.
Abraham Lincoln was the first I went to. He definitely qualifies, so his profile has been posted. He had courage, vision, perseverance.
George Washington was the second. There is an impressive man. His selflessness, humility, vision, and courage were amazing. His profile is now in the Gallery of Heroes.
Perhaps unsurprisingly these two and Franklin Roosevelt are consistently ranked the top three presidents. I obviously went to the right men.
I could read about Jefferson and the other Roosevelt, but most of my readers are American, so I thought I’d ask you. On this Presidents Day, which president was the most heroic to you and why?
