Events for November:
A Thanksgiving Treat
A Living History Interview with Sarah Josepha Hale:
“The Godmother of Thanksgiving”
Did you ever wonder how this uniquely American holiday got started?
Most people in the USA never even heard of Thanksgiving until Sarah
Hale introduced it in 1827. Sarah shares her passionate and unrelenting
40 year campaign to create a national day of Thanksgiving while the country
was in the midst of a Civil War. Using direct quotes from her editorials as
the Editor of the first American magazine for women, and letters to and from
5 Presidents, Sarah’s story is an authentic representation of how a woman
on a mission can get the job done!
