Exceptionally Early Thanksgiving Holiday Proclamation Broadside:
Thanksgiving broadside - for the third Thursday of November
Thanksgiving Day. This piece was published 63 years prior to the recognition of Thanksgiving as a federal holiday by Abraham Lincoln. This document is Jacob Sleeper’s (of Connecticut) call to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday well before it was a widely-accepted tradition. It is striking and festive.
