Proclamation of Thanksgiving
October 20th, 1864
By the President of the United States of America.
Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, do hereby appoint
and set apart the last Thursday in November next as a day which I
desire to be observed by all my fellow-citizens, wherever they may
be then, as a day of Thanksgiving and praise to Almighty God, the
beneficent Creator and Ruler of the Universe. And I do further
recommend to my fellow-citizens… that on that occasion they
do reverently humble themselves in the dust, and from thence offer
up penitent and fervent prayers and supplications to the great
Disposer of events for a return of the inestimable blessings of
peace, union, and harmony throughout the land which it has pleased
him to assign as a dwelling –place for ourselves and for our
posterity throughout all generations.”
