Dwight D. Eisenhower's 128th birthday

Sunday, October 14, 2018

Several events this week commemorate Ike's birthday. Dwight David Eisenhower was born October 14, 1890, in Denison, Texas, the third of seven sons of David and Ida Eisenhower. His family returned to Abilene, Kansas, in 1892, where Ike grew up, graduated high school, and worked until he entered the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1911.
