Remembering Novembers Past...

 November 1st - All Hallows Day, also known as All Saints Day, commemorating those who have no special feast day.

November 1, 1776 - Mission San Juan Capistrano, of "Swallows" fame, was founded in California.

November 1, 1848 - The first medical school for women opened in Boston. The Boston Female Medical School was founded by Samuel Gregory with just twelve students.

November 1, 1914 - The bra was invented.

November 3, 1952 – Clarence Birdseye marketed frozen peas.

November 5 - Remembered as Guy Fawkes Day in Britain, for the anniversary of the failed "Gunpowder Plot" to blow up the Houses of Parliament and King James I in 1605.

November 6, 1860 - Abraham Lincoln was elected as the 16th U.S. President and the first Republican. He received 180 of 303 possible electoral votes and 40 percent of the popular vote.

November 13, 1942 - The minimum draft age for military service was lowered from 21 to 18.

November 19, 1863 - President Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address during ceremonies dedicating 17 acres of the Gettysburg Battlefield as a National Cemetery.  This year marks the 150th anniversary of the speech.

November 19, 1868 - 172 New Jersey suffragists, including four African American women, attempted to vote in the presidential election and were turned away.

November 22, 1963 - In downtown Dallas, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

November 24, 1859 - Charles Darwin's book On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection was published.

November 30, 2004 -  Longtime Jeopardy champ Ken Jennings finally loses, leaving with $2,520,700 - the most ever won on a TV game show.  Of course, the government took about half for taxes.

Thanksgiving - Was first celebrated in 1863, when Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the Holiday for the last Thursday in November in a failed attempt to create a sense of unity between the north and south.

In 1941, Thanksgiving was changed to the fourth Thursday  by President Roosevelt, who felt an earlier date would give the country a much-needed economic boost.  It worked, in the short run.

Now that you know all of this, go, and sin no more…

And, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
