Washington was born on February 11, 1732 according to the Julian or "old Style" calendar then in use in Britain and British Colonies in America. This date became February 22 after 1752 when Britain and the Colonies switched to the Justinian Calendar which we use today. (Washington supposedly continued to celebrate his birthday on February 11.)

Washington's birthday was therefore celebrated on Feb 22 until Congress decided to move federal holiday to Mondays, so now we celebrate on the Monday of the week of February 22. Washington was born 22 February 1732
