Wednesday Trivia

The answer to yesterday's question is:
Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, and Kurt Cobain.

Today's question is:
Given that the Pilgrims' Thanksgiving probably took place in October, how is it that the last Thursday in November became established as Thanksgiving in the United States?

If I remember right, President Lincoln designated it as such, during the Civil War. I don't think it had anything to do with Pilgrims, though...
