The Remarkable Woman Who Helped Make Thanksgiving a Holiday

Long before Vogue or Glamour caught women’s attention, Godey’s Lady’s Book introduced the latest fashions. The magazine also gave readers a look at the world beyond their homes. Sarah Josepha (Buell) Hale (1788–1879) guided its content for four decades. She was the first American woman to manage a major publication. As editor, she had influence over many aspects of American life in the mid-1800s.
