Monday, Feb. 20 marks Presidents Day -- also known as Washington's Birthday -- in the U.S., a celebration of the lives and service of those who have held the highest office in the nation and led our country since its inception. Originally established to celebrate the birthday of the United States' first president George Washington, most states now celebrate the third Monday in February in honor of all American presidents.
Amongst the massive collection of rare, unique and historic firearms in the NRA Museums collection are several prized guns that once belonged to a few of these presidents. Firearms that belonged to Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy are just a few of the presidential arms in the galleries.
