(Hour 2c) Courage, NH actor, writer and producer James Patrick Riley knows exactly where the settlers would stand on the issue of stores openingtheir doors for shoppers on Thanksgiving. They would have none of it!
They had a devout reverence for the holiday, and they expected none less from their elected officials.
Riley shared “Thanksgiving proclamations” by former NH Governor John Wentworth, who was unabashed about publicly thanking God.
Riley opined about how different our country might be today if we practiced and displayed the same sort of reverence for God that our ancestors did.
