On October 3, 1863, President Lincoln, issued a proclamation of thanksgiving which set apart the last Thursday of November as a “day of Thanksgiving and Praise.”
Earlier in his administration on November 28, 1861, Lincoln had ordered government departments closed for a local day of thanksgiving. After that, there became an increasing interest to have Thanksgiving the same day in all the states.
