Is It George Washington's Birthday?

George Washington might have been born on this date.  Again, maybe not.  He was born February 22, 1732, which is OS February 11, 1732.  If I have this straight, he was born according to the calendar then on 11th, however that was the old calendar.  After the new calendar dates was set into place days before the date it was shifted 11 days.  Do you get it?  Good for you!  Now, explain it to me.

Speaking of George Washington, for those who know me will not be surprised that George is a relative of mine.  Actually, an in-law.  My Petty family is related to George's wife Martha Dandridge Custis.
