Historic Abraham Lincoln Thanksgiving Day Proclamation Civil War 1863 Newspaper

Historic ABRAHAM LINCOLN Thanksgiving Day Proclamation CIVIL WAR 1863 Newspaper (Note: additional images are located below the description) Shown is an original & historic old newspaper, offered to enhance your collectible interest: NEW YORK TIMES, Oct. 4, 1863

* President Abraham Lincoln
* Thanksgiving Day proclamation (historic)
* Now a National Holiday - Civil War

Although almost every President since George Washington has issued a proclamation for a "day of Thanksgiving", typically celebrated in November but at other times of the year as well, it was Abraham Lincoln who formalized Thanksgiving Day to be celebrated the fourth Thursday of every year and making it a national holiday.

Appearing at the top of the front page is: "A PROCLAMATION" "By the President of the United States of America" which begins: "The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the Source from which they come..." with much more, and including: "...to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of Thanksgiving and prayer to our beneficent Father...". The document is signed in type by the President: Abraham Lincoln, created just the day before on October 3 (see).

Great to have this notable content at the top of the front page, as other newspapers printed this report on inside pages. Complete in 8 pages, very nice condition.
