Fort Campbell, KY – “I do, therefore, invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a Day of Thanksgiving…”
It was with these words that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed Thanksgiving a national holiday on October 3rd, 1863. America was embroiled in conflict just like we are now, yet there was much to be thankful for as a nation – “needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defense…,” as Lincoln described. The same holds true today.
