Thanks President Madison

Postby egghead » Thu Nov 23, 2017 8:44 am

Thanks to our 4th president, James Madison, a day of thanksgiving was proclaimed in 1815.

Proclamation 20—Recommending a Day of Public Thanksgiving for Peace

“The Senate and House of Representatives of the United States have by a joint resolution signified their desire that a day may be recommended to be observed by the people of the United States with religious solemnity as a day of thanksgiving ......”

A day that families get together and give thanks as well as the heaviest travel weekend of all holidays. Travel safe amigos.
