Remembering “A Thanksgiving Truce”

Share this post:

In 2011 our colleague Stacie Moats wrote a post featuring a cartoon from Puck titled, “A Thanksgiving Truce.” The image features Theodore Roosevelt and some forest animals settling down for a Thanksgiving feast.

As I was thinking about what to feature for Thanksgiving, this image came back to mind and it made me hope that perhaps even sworn enemies can put aside their differences and break bread together for at least one day.

For even more Thanksgiving images, check out Free to Use and Reuse: Thanksgiving in History from the collections of the Library of Congress.

All of us who work on education at the Library hope that you have a peaceful Thanksgiving.
