Product Description

A true slice of Americana. This dramatic re-telling of the history of Thanksgiving proves the holiday is more than just turkey and pumkin pie. Actors dramatize the arrival of the Mayflower and noted Thanksgiving-related events during the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. The actor portraying President Lincoln dramatically proclaims Thanksgiving a national holiday, in 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, thanks to a relentless push from noted 74-year-old magazine editor, Sarah Josepha Hale.

USA, 1954, B&W, 21 minutes.
