Gulph Mills as site of Nation’s first Thanksgiving recognized in Biden’s Thanksgiving Address

Shout out to President Biden for recognizing Gulph Mills as the site of the nation’s first Thanksgiving on 12/18/1777. I’ve written often about that historic day, especially in my books, Six Days in December, and Becoming Valley Forge. Biden refers to George Washington’s Proclamation as well as the commemorative marker at the site of the Gulph Mills SEPTA station. I wonder if he’s a fan of my books? I hope so. Anyway, glad that Gulph Mills is getting its historical due!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
