Happy Thanksgiving from TPSNVA

We would hope you will enjoy the following gems from the Library of Congress.

 Since the holidays are upon us, and we are also still in the midst of commemorating the Sesquicentennial of the U.S. Civil War, we thought it might be interesting to explore what the soldiers ate during that war and how they celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday.
