History of the day for November 23

In 1863, President Abe Lincoln declares the last Thursday of November a national holiday, reveling in the fact that one day in the future we will have what is known as Thanksgiving traffic -- every car in America trying to use the same road at the same time while every person in America tries to board a plane at the same time.
