Here’s a good history of the United States for sale…announcement George Washington offered to make Thanksgiving a national holiday.
The first American president issued this proclamation in October 1798, designating the last Thursday of November as the first Thanksgiving holiday.
A handwritten declaration by the founding father, complete with his signature at the bottom, is for sale Time in Time … with a high price of $ 15 million.
The most important document in history is being sold by a private collector, and its value has skyrocketed over the years as it changes hands.
When the piece hit the open market in 1977, it sold for $3,000… and when it was on the market again about 7 years ago, it sold for $6.5 million.
Now it’s going for $15 million … which is Thanksgiving dinner.
