If these are factual, such are for history buffs (those of us who question legit historical assertions and/or claims) who might want to set the annals of mankind corrected/amended assuming further there is such a thing many refer to as 'political correctness.'

Trixie Pettman-South, I'm not sure why we celebrate it in Canada anyways ! More in line would be a day marking the first landing of ships bringing British 'Adventurers' who were the first employees of the HBC fur trading posts; or of the Frenchmen ' Coeur de Bois whom collected the furs. One could equate those men to the American Mountain Men.

I read somewhere that president Abraham Lincoln declared or suggested Thanksgiving to be a national holiday. Is that true ?

Carol Baker, but October is closer to real harvest time and if we had it mid-October, we could do even more Christmas shopping and retailers would not have to rely on December sales only to "make a living".
