August About this sound (pronunciation) is the eighth month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar and one of seven Gregorian months with a length of 31 days.[1]
.This month was originally named Sextilis in Latin, because it was the sixth month in the original ten-month Roman calendar under Romulus in 753 BCE, when March was the first month of the year.About 700 BCE it became the eighth month when January and February were added to the year before March by King Numa Pompilius, who also gave it 29 days.^ Anyone who has complaints about our healthcare now is invited to wait a few years, until the Dems have taken it over.

From LoveToKnow 1911

AUGUST (originally Sextilis), the sixth month in the preJulian Roman year, which received its present name from the emperor Augustus. The preceding month, Quintilis, had been called "July" after Julius Caesar, and the emperor chose August to be rechristened in his own honour because his greatest good fortune had then happened. In that month he had been admitted to the consulate, had thrice celebrated a triumph, had received the allegiance of the soldiers stationed on the Janiculum, had concluded the civil wars, and had subdued Egypt. .As July contained thirty-one days, and August only thirty, it was thought necessary to add another day to the latter month, in order that the month of Augustus might not be in any respect inferior to that of Julius.^ I used to do the two step operations but recognized one day that the only thing I've ever done with the downloaded copies of tar files after the initial installation is to delete them.

August is the eighth month of the year. It has 31 days.

This month was first called Sextilis in Latin, because it was the sixth month in the old Roman calendar. The Roman calendar began in March about 735 BC with Romulus. It was the eighth month when January or February were added to the start of the year by King Numa Pompilius about 700 BC. Or, when those two months were moved from the end to the beginning of the year by the decemvirs about 450 BC (Roman writers disagree).

August is named for Augustus Caesar.[1] The month has 31 days because the Roman senate wanted as many days as Julius Caesar's month July.[1] Augustus is in summer, after July and before September.

An extra month was moved from February in order to make the month of August seem more important. This was undone when the leap year adjustment was made. [1]

August's flower is the Gladioli with the birthstone being Peridot.
