New York: Auction of Thanksgiving Proclamation

The fourth Thursday of November, Americans celebrate one of the most important holidays of the year: Thanksgiving, first proclaimed by George Washington, and, this month of November 2013, the original document with the proclamation of the feast , who signed the first president of the United States is auctioned at Christie’s in New York.

The first Proclamation Thanksgiving signs it President Washington on October 3, 1789.
It is a valuable historical document which Christie’s estimated 8 to 12 million.
The auction will be celebrated on November 14.
In that document, the Washington president invites Americans “to give thanks to God for his protection, for victory in the struggle for freedom and for peace and prosperity in the new country.”
The festivity remembers the settlement of the settlers in the country for more than four hundred years.
Although George Washington proclaimed November 26 as the day of the celebration, Franklin D. Roosevelt decided in 1941 to be held on the fourth Thursday of November.
From 3 to November 13, the document is displayed by several cities: Los Angeles (California), Dallas (Texas), Chicago (Illinois), Boston (Massachusetts), Washington DC, Philadelphia (Pennsylvania) and New York.
