The Origin of Mother's Day

Each year the president issues a Mother's Day Proclamation.

Ah, Mother's Day. That time of year when we pause to thank Mom for all the things she's done for us, from making dinner and helping with homework to cosigning car loans for college students. In America, Anna Jarvis receives credit for being the first to campaign for an official Mother's Day in 1906. In three years 46 states had adopted an official Mother's Day and by 1914 it was a national holiday. It quickly became a very popular retail holiday, with sales of flowers, cards and jewelry taking off. Interestingly, in her final years Jarvis spent her time trying to decommercialize Mother's Day because she felt it had lost it's meaning. That being said, the origin of Mother's Day actually started over 30 years before Anna Jarvis brought national attention to the idea.

The original Mother's Day Proclamation was made in 1870. It was written by Julia Ward Howe. Julia Ward Howe is perhaps best known today for having written the words to "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" in 1862 when she was an antislavery activist.

The original Proclamation was an impassioned call for peace and disarmament. In the years following the Civil War her political activism increased, as did her condemnation of war. Here are the words to the ORIGINAL Mothers' Day Proclamation.

Mother's Day Proclamation

"Arise then, women of this day!  Arise all women who have hearts, whether your baptism be of water or of tears!

"Say firmly":  'We will not have questions decided by irrelevant agencies.  Our husbands shall not come to us reeking of carnage for caresses and applause.  Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn all that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy, and patience.  We women of one country will be too tender to those of another country to allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs.  From the bosom of a devastated Earth a voice goes up with our own, it says "Disarm! Disarm!" The sword of murder is not the balance of justice.  Blood does not wipe out dishonor, nor violence indicate possession.'

"As men have forsaken the plow and the anvil at the summons of war, let women now leave all that may be left of home for a great and earnest day of counsel.  Let them meet first as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead.  Let them solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means whereby the great human family can live in peace, each bearing after his time the sacred impress not of Caesar, but of God.

"In the name of womanhood and humanity, I earnestly ask that a general congress of women without limit of nationality be appointed and held at some place deemed most convenient and at the earliest period consistent with its objects, to promote the alliance of the different nationalities, the amicable settlement of international questions, the great and general interests of peace."
