From long before President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday in November as a National Day of Thanksgiving in 1863, PA Germans throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania had expressed their gratitude to God for another year of harvests to sustain their families and communities. The Day of Harvest Home Service was a highlight of the fall season in PA Dutch communities. Bob Gerhart will discuss the original PA German Thanksgiving.
