Giving Thanks to SJH

Happy Thanksgiving!
As you get ready to celebrate tomorrow you may want to take a little time to learn more about the New Hampshire author who convinced Abraham Lincoln to create Thanksgiving. Check out NH Public Radio's Sarah Josepha Hale, The Mother of Thanksgiving. Sarah Josepha Hale, born in Newport in 1788, is the woman in whose honor the Hale Award is given each year.
