Wikipedia visualized: “From the time of the Founding Fathers until the time of Lincoln, the date Thanksgiving was observed varied from state to state. The final Thursday in November had become the customary date in most U.S. states by the beginning of the 19th century. Thanksgiving was first celebrated on the same date by all states in 1863 by a presidential proclamation of Abraham Lincoln. Influenced by the campaigning of author Sarah Josepha Hale, who wrote letters to politicians for around 40 years trying to make it an official holiday, Lincoln proclaimed the date to be the final Thursday in November in an attempt to foster a sense of American unity between the Northern and Southern states.Because of the ongoing Civil War and the Confederate States of America's refusal to recognize Lincoln's authority, a nationwide Thanksgiving date was not realized until Reconstruction was completed in the 1870s.”

State Senate campaign poster, 1910
Franklin Roosevelt entered politics at age 28. Handsome, engaging, and blessed with a celebrated, vote-getting last name, FDR began his rapid rise by winning a seat in New York’s state senate in 1910 and championing the kind of progressive reforms his distant cousin, Theodore Roosevelt, had called for.
This poster was distributed during FDR’s first election campaign in 1910. Running in a heavily-Republican district, he won by a narrow margin of 1,140 votes.
