A Day of Thanksgiving (Civil War Style)

Happy Thanksgiving!


During the Civil War, both American presidents – Jefferson Davis of the Confederacy and Abraham Lincoln of the United States – issued proclamations for “days of thanksgiving.” One of the Lincoln’s announcements became the basis for our modern holiday.

Learn more about America’s heritage of giving thanks and read the actual words of the Davis and Lincoln in this new blog post featured on Emerging Civil War.
