PHILADELPHIA WOMAN HONORED
Transition tn 31 odea of Celehratlna;
the Day From the Invention
Dnvrn to (t.U War
Nearly every American who gives any
thought to the origin of Thanksgiving day
Imagines that he Is honoring a custom
Inaugurated by the Pilgrim Fathers.
These liiitortc Immigrants, upon landing
safely after their pertloua voyjrge, he
doubtless recalls, thanked Ood for IIit
goodness In bringing them to a land
where they could be free and have a
chance for happiness according to their
own ideas of that elusive condition. But
this was not the origin of the present day
The flret national Thanksgiving which
was destined to become a permanent fea
ture of the American ytar had nothing
to do with tho praiss services of the Pll
gtims. nor was It Intended as a continua
tion of the early New England custom.
It resulted from the turn of the civil
war's crimson tide, when It began to ebb
from the bloody heights of Gettysburg,
and a Philadelphia woman, Mrs. Sarah
J. Hale, then editor of that famous pub
lication. Oodey's Lady's Bock, was re
sponsible for having It established as a
national hoKday. The first thanksgiving
celebration held under proclamation by
the New Knglanders was the occasion for
a long and gorgeous feast, which lasted
In tVaybnck Pays.
In 1611 Governor Bradford of Massa
chusetts proclaimed December IS aa a
day of thanksgiving, to be observed 'In
gratitude for tho plenteous harvest of
that year. ' Th'e festival was sura a suc
cess that It was repeated at frequent In
tervals throughout the year. As the
years wore on It became popular with the
atern New Knglanders, as an offset to
Christmas, which savored too much of
high church to please their austere con
sciences, and In the middle of the last
century Thanksgiving day rivaled New
Year's as a calling day. Society wined
and dined at noon, drove on Its fashion
able roadway, and then held receptions.
Open houso was kept, and one man, by
reason of his great hospitality, has come
down In social history as "Turner the
During the Revolutionary war, when
ever the festival was celebrated, there
was less fen sting and more pray.ng. On
December 18, 1777. Washington proclaimed
a day of thanksgiving for the army, and
on May 7, 1778, at Valley Forge, the poor,
worn out Continentals knelt down In their
rags and thanked Ood or their deliver
ance from the enemy.
- Several presidents after Washington
proclaimed a special Thanksgiving day,
but It waa not a regular custom, and It
was usually left to the governors ot tha
different states to decide when the day
should be, or If it should be at all, al.
though in New England It, was 'hardlj
ever omitted. , v
Aaltatlon (or Vatlonnl Obeerranee.
Mrs. Eareh Josepha Hale became editor
of Qodeys lady's Book in 1S37. She waa
a native of New England, having been
born In' Newport, N. II., on October U,
1788. 8ho waa surprised to find, when
she came to Philadelphia, that Thanks
giving was not celebrated aa much as or
in the way she thought It ought to be.
Mrs. Hale was a woman of great charm,
strong character and extremely energetic.
She was also very tenacious of, her Ideas
and very persistant In puahing them. For
twenty years or more she untiringly agi
tated the question of Thanksgiving day
being made a national and annual holt
da)'. She wrote letters to all the. gov
ernors of the 'different states, and terri
tories, urging that they appoint the last
Thursday In November in each year as a
day for thanksgiving, celebrating It with
a general holiday and by servloes in the
ehurchee, thanking Ood for giving such
a land of plenty and so many and great
opportunities for happiness and advance
ment to the Americans. - ,'
This is tbs spirit In which Thanksgiv
ing day Is supposed always to have been
celebrated - by modern Americans, but.
until Mrs. Hale succeeded In having it
made a national holiday, It. waa really
more a day set apart for gorgeous feast'
ing after bounteous harvests, than any
thing else. The custom of observing the
holiday by dreaslng up in fantastic cos
tumes and parading the streets is a sur
vival of the old Guy Fawksa' day of Eng
land, and wns brought to America by the
early English settlers. Tha feeling which
tho colonists still had for the mother
country caused them to remember this
custom and include it with their harvest
By lfcuS, after twenty years of effort.
two governors had yielded to the entreat
ies of Mrs. Hale, but there waa no very
widespread Interest, and the custom
lugged, especially In the south.
President Lincoln Approves.
Lincoln waa the first president who re
sponded favorably to Mrs. Hales' sug
gestion.- Directly after the battle of Get
tysburg, in July. 1861. Mrs. Hale wrote to
President Lincoln, inclosing ft copy of
Washington's proclamation, and suggested
that be also proclaim a national day of
thanksgiving. President Lincoln followed
her suggestion, and on July 15, W by
proclaiming the sixth day of August of
that year "as a day for national thanks
giving, praise and prayer." In that year
there were two thanksgiving days, for
Lincoln proclaimed another lata in the
fall, and from that time on Thanksgiving
day became a regular national holiday,
owing to the persistent effort ot this in
Mrs. Hale was the widow o. Iavld
Hale, who died when she waa a little
over 30. leaving her with five children to
care for. Pha waa obliged to support
herself and her children, and did so by
writing for various magaslncs until, la
1828, she waa given the position of editor
of the Ladles' Magasine, which was after
ward united with Godey'g Lady's Book.
She continued her editorial work on
Godey'a until 1ST7, when she retired,' at
the age of 9, dying two years later.
To Mrs. Sarah J. Hale, then, of Phila
delphia, American owe their moat char
acteristic holiday, outside of the Fourth
of July, and they owe to her efforts the
special character of the day, the giving
thanks to God for America, w.lch. In
deed, appears so natural a festival for
Americana that nobody apparently dreams
there waa ever any other reason for tlie
tclet'stlun. J'lilla. North Amerkraa.
