The official observance of Mother's Day resulted from the efforts of Anna Jarvis of Philidelphia. In 1868 her mother had organized a Mother's Friendship Day in a West Virginia town to unite Confederate and Union families after the Civil War. Anna Reeves Jarvis died on the second Sunday of May 1905. In 1907 her daughter began promoting the second Sunday in May as a holiday to honor mothers. Folowing an act of Congress in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May Mother's Day.
