Quote of the day: Comes from Abraham Lincoln and the start of our Thanksgiving Day celebration! Everyone enjoy your family and friends and be grateful we are free to do so! God Bless you all...
"Now, therefore, I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, do hereby appoint and set apart the last Thursday in November * next as a day which I desire to be observed by all my fellow-citizens, wherever they may be then, as a day of thanksgiving and praise to Almighty God, the beneficent Creator and Ruler of the Universe. And I do further recommend to my fellow-citizens aforesaid, that on the occasion they do reverently humble themselves in the dust, and from thence offer up penitent and fervent prayers and supplications to the great Disposer of events for a return of the inestimable blessings of peace, union, and harmony throughout the land which it has pleased Him to assign as a dwelling-place for ourselves and for our posterity throughout all generations."
~ Proclamation of Thanksgiving, 1864
* 1939, President Franklin D. Roosevelt broke the tradition by moving thanksgiving to the next to last Thursday.
