  • President Eisenhower Feeds a Turkey
    Unknown
    Thanksgiving
    holidays
    In this photograph President Dwight D. Eisenhower feeds a cranberry to a turkey he received from the Turkey Foundation. The presentation occurred in the West Garden, which is now the Rose Garden. Presidents and their families have received turkeys for the holidays since the 1870s. The origin of the turkey pardon is said to have started with President Abraham Lincoln in 1863, after he offered a clemency to a turkey purchased for Christmas dinner at his son's request. However, the pardoning of a Thanksgiving turkey became a formalized tradition during the Ronald Reagan administration.

    mosaic
    This mosaic is a reproduction of the Black Madonna, a revered Polish icon, by Jan E. Krantz. The original, called Our Lady of Czestochowa, is housed in Jansa Gora Monastery in Czestochowa, Poland. The mosaic depicts the Virgin Mary holding an infant Jesus. This reproduction was gifted to President Lyndon B. Johnson in the Rose Garden by United States Senator Ed Muskie of Maine on behalf of the Polish-American people at the Polish National and Christian Millennium Day on May 3, 1966. President Johnson's proclamation of the day marked the 1000th anniversary of Polish Christian identity and nationhood, claiming it as the beginning of Poland's participation in the community of western nations. President Johnson later requested the mosaic be placed in the Immaculate Conception Church in Panna Maria, Texas, the oldest Polish settlement in the United States.
