Very nice article, but your biblical citation is incorrect. There is no mention of Sukkoth in Leviticus 16:11. It is Deuteronomy 16:13-16.

Thanks, Sharon. The second reference is Deuteronomy, while the first was from Leviticus.

The source in question Leviticus 23: 40.

Great article but it was 1841 that Congress established the last Thursday in Nov as Thanksgiving. You have 1941 – typo?

No, that is not a typo. That’s the date Library of Congress lists: http://www.loc.gov/teachers/classroommaterials/presentationsandactivities/presentations/thanksgiving/timeline/1941.html
