It was 1863 and the country was in the midst of a great civil war when Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the first national Thanksgiving. With victories at Vicksburg and Gettysburg it had become more a question of when rather than if the Union would prevail. These times are also not without their troubles; but today I have much to thankful for; including a bit of turkey and football. I am also thankful for this forum and all the folks who spend a little time here.
