When women were intentionally left out of the U.S. Constitution, it was the first wife and mother of a U.S. President (Barbara Bush was the second), Abigail Adams, who told her husband, John, to "not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. Remember, all men would be tyrants if they could. If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to forment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation."(written on March 31, 1776)

We have a long tradition in our country of setting aside a day to express our gratitude for our many benefits. It began in 1607 when settlers in Maine had a thanksgiving service for their safe arrival on those shores. A bit later William Bradford proclaimed a special day of thanksgiving for the settlers of the Plymouth Colony as they gathered in a bounteous harvest. From Washington at Valley Forge to Lincoln during the Civil War, nationwide observances of thanksgiving were held. That tradition, unbroken to this day, continues now annually by presidential proclamation.
