Mother's Day Countdown 2022 Week 1 Midweek Post Famous Mothers


Julia Ward Howe can be given credit for Mother’s Day even though Anne Jarvis was responsible for the organization of the holiday. It was Julia’s writing that began the tradition. In 1872, she was the editor at Woman’s Journal where she penned the Mother’s Day Proclamation that laid the groundwork for the holiday that Anne Jarvis was inspired to launch.

Julia also was the author behind the pen on The Battle Hymn of the Republic after an inspirational meeting with Abraham Lincoln. She went on to be a co-founder in the New England Woman Suffrage Association and was a vehement advocator of the education of women.

In 1908, she died at the age of 88. She was the mother of six children.
