Thanksgiving Day Proclamation
President Andrew Jackson
Let us remember that He has covered our land with greatly needed and very abundant harvests; that He has caused industry to prosper, not only in our fields, but also in our workshops, in our mines, and in our forests. He has permitted us to multiply ships upon our lakes and rivers and upon the high seas, and at the same time to extend our iron roads to far into the secluded places of the continent. He has inclined our hearts to turn away from domestic contentions and commotions and to walk more and more in the ancient ways of loyalty, conciliation, and brotherly love.
