Some other names associated with this festive holiday: One of the earliest Thanksgiving celebrations in America was held in VIRGINIA; ABRAHAM LINCOLN issued a presidential proclamation (influenced by the campaigning of SARAH JOSEPHA HALE) making it a national holiday, the actual date established by FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT.
