Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving Day

A variant of the harvest festivals celebrated in many parts of the
world, Thanksgiving is popularly traced to a 1621 feast shared by the
English Pilgrims who founded the Plymouth Colony (located in
present-day Massachusetts) and members of the Wampanoag Indian tribe.

Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 proclamation that Thanksgiving became an annual
national holiday. He called for it to be celebrated on the last
Thursday of November. It was in the dark days of the Civil War, but
Lincoln said that difficult times made it even more appropriate for
blessings to be "gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one
voice by the whole American people."

During the 19th century an increasing number of states observed the day
annually, each appointing its own day. President Abraham Lincoln, on
October 3, 1863, by presidential proclamation appointed the last
Thursday of November as Thanksgiving Day, due to the unremitting
efforts of Sarah J. Hale, editor of Godey’s Lady’s Book.
