How the Civil War Created Thanksgiving
Of all the bedtime-story versions of American history we teach, the tidy Thanksgiving pageant may be the one stuffed with the heaviest serving of myth. This iconic tale is the main course in our nation’s foundation legend, complete with cardboard cutouts of bow-carrying Native American cherubs and pint-size Pilgrims in black hats with buckles. And legend it largely is. New York Times

Every State's Signature Thanksgiving Dish, Mapped Out
Illinois' own Abraham Lincoln established Thanksgiving in 1863 in the United States "a day of Thanksgiving and Praise." Though Thanksgiving had been celebrated sporadically throughout the country since the 1600s, Lincoln's official designation of the day was also meant to give a day of reprieve and peace during the Civil War. He acted at the behest of magazine editor Sarah Josepha Hale, who for years had tried to have a uniform day of thanks established for the entire country. Huffington Post

10 THINGS TO WATCH BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER THANKSGIVING
Poor Thanksgiving. All sad and sandwiched in between Halloween and Christmas. Stores don't decorate for it, and then to add insult to injury, they start their Black Friday sales at 6 pm Thursday night, forcing their employees out the door, pie undigested, back to work. Even TV can't be bothered. Lady Gaga notwithstanding, who goes out of their way to mount a Thanksgiving-themed TV special anymore? You're lucky to get a mediocre sitcom's attention if you're not Christmas (the long lost 1999 Puritan-themed sitcom Thanks being a notable, extremely strange, exception). It's somewhat unfair.
