After 36 years of constant campaigning by Sarah Hale, President Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a national holiday in 1863.   This wasn’t Hale’s only contribution to society.  As the editor of women’s magazines she downplayed the importance of fashion and instead printed articles on history, science, and new schools for women.
