Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast in 1621 that today is acknowledged as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states at different times. It wasn't until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day would be held each November. From the staff of The Daily Review, we’re wishing your day be filled with family, friends, love and laughter. Have a safe and happy holiday.
