A Fictional Letter to President Lincoln
July 25, 1863
Dear President Lincoln,
I am writing to tell you that I think that you should make Thanksgiving a national holiday. Here are some reasons why this is a good idea.
The first reason I think Thanksgiving should be a national holiday is because the Pilgrims taught the Indians about friendship with each other. They had a feast with the Indians. So the Pilgrims taught us how to develop friendships with people who are different. I think we should celebrate this.
Another reason is that the Mayflower Compact drew up a plan on how they would govern themsleves. It gave us the idea for the U.S. Constitution which is our plan for our government.
So please make Thanksgiving a national holiday. It’s the right thing to do. That’s why I think you should make it a national day to remember these important poeple and what they did for our country.
