Calligraphy Flourish Friday - Abraham Lincoln's Thanksgiving Day Proclamation

 With the Lincoln film releasing today, I thought it would be fun to recreate a portion of President Lincoln's Thanksgiving Day Proclamation.

Wishing each of you a very Happy Thanksgiving, and if you will be traveling, safety (and patience!) ;)

This is a snippet of the original proclamation.  You can view the entire, original Lincoln proclamation, as well as George Washington's Thanksgiving Day Proclamation, at the National Archives by CLICKING HERE.

Go forth and flourish!
