It her day, Sarah was the leading influencer in fashion and all matters concerning the keeping of a home. Everything from furnishings to cooking, sewing to the latest fashions, hand-crafts, sheet music and more were a part of each issue. Sarah advocated the values of education and women in the workforce, and Godey's published original works by American authors, including Sarah's poem "Mary Had a Little Lamb". She was largely responsible for President Lincoln proclaiming Thanksgiving a national holiday.
